The Secretary-General of the United nations, Dr. Kurt Waldheim, has said that, if south Africa?
The Secretary-General of the United nations, Dr. Kurt Waldheim, has said that, if south Africa continued its 'negative attitude and repressive policies" in South West Africa (Namibia), it would lead to an increasingly dangerous confrontation and would threaten world peace.
His warning was contained in a message prepared for the ceremonial opening in Lisbon on Thursday (12 June) of a session of the U.N.'s 24-nation Decolonisation Committee. It was road to the Committee by Mr. Tang Ming-chao, the U.N. Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs and Decolonisation, who is also attending the week-long meeting there.
Dr. Waldheim -- who was in Spain at the time of the opening session -- said in his statement that United Nations ' resolutions and an advisory opinion of the World Court called on South Africa to recognise the territorial integrity and unity of Namibia and to "withdraw its illegal administration from the territory".
Committer members' concern over the question was also reflected by the representative of the Angolan Liberation Front (MPLA) Mr. Elisio de Figueiredo, and the Indonesian representative, Mr. Chardar Anwar Sani.
