    The Foreign Minister of Mozambique, Mr. Joaquim Chissano, addressed the United Nations General Assembly on?

  • Description

    The Foreign Minister of Mozambique, Mr. Joaquim Chissano, addressed the United Nations General Assembly on Monday (6 October), and said that the United States' decision to veto the applications of North and South Vietnam into the world body was "highly immoral". The U.S. representative used the veto in retaliation for the refusal of the Security Council to consider an application from South Korea.

    Mr. Chissano also told the Assembly that repression in South Africa had reached unprecedented levels. In this, his first address to the General Assembly since Mozambique became a member of the U.N. last month, he said that many western countries could not escape responsibility for the situation in South Africa, because of their active support of the apartheid regime.

    He said that in South Africa enormous human suffering was being inflicted by a minority on the masses of the people.

    "Lately repression against its own citizens has been intensified to a level so far unknown in that country", he said. "Practices such as those taking place in South Africa take on the form of colonialism and Nazism".
