    Ambassador Kabeya Wa Mukeda said the mining potential of Zaira had proved an irresistible attraction to what he called the "voracious gluttony" of the Russian and Cubans. He charged that the f"vultures of the Urals and the Caribbean" and descend on Zaire in order to teach their brother of the black races how to kill each other. He said that Soviet and Cuban statements in the General Assembly, describing the Belgian and French military presence in Zaire as "a menace to Africa", were only diversionary manoeuvres.
