    BAROODY: "The world is divided into spheres of influence as I have mentioned time and again. As if each region is a chequer-board on which these Ceasars play their chess game. Not with wooden pieces, but with the destiny of peoples. Many of whose rules, unfortunately, become clients of one major power or the other. But such policies have backfired. How often we saw these clients, induced or enticed by big power aid, eat the bait and neglect the hook. And if they were caught by the hook their peoples sooner or later rebelled against them and untold suffering was inflicted on the innocent."

    Background: At the disarmament talks at the United Nations, the Saudi Arabian delegate has accused the great powers of treating the world like a chess board. The Zairean delegate described the Soviet Union and Cuba as "vultures of the Urals and the Caribbean", and accused them of involvement in last month's invasion of Shaba province.

    Ambassador Kabeya Wa Mukeda of Zaire then spoke.

    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.
