Zambia's President, Kenneth Kaunda has strongly attacked outside intervention in the current war in the former Portuguese territory of Angola. He was speaking at a seminar of Zambia's defence forces in the capital Lusaka on Tuesday (2 December).
Dr. Kaunda said external intervention had prevented the search for a practical and just solution which would give the people of Angola peace and prosperity.
He demanded that all foreign military personnel engaged in the war should quit Angola.
President Kaunda said Zambia believed that a government of national unity was the best solution for Angola. Zambia did not believe that a military solution would give Africa and Angola she wanted to see.
Dr. Kaunda also called for Namibia's (South-west Africa) independence and attacked the "abhorrent practices" of apartheid. Security forces from South Africa's apartheid government are in South-west Africa.
