  • Description

    Senegal's Foreign minister, Mr. Karim Lgaye, yesterday called for effective measures by the Security Council against Portugal for alleged involvement in last year's invasion of Guinea. Senegal charges that Portugal committed acts of aggression against the West African state, but it is uncertain what action the world body would take.

    SYNOPSIS: Senegal's Foreign Minister, Mr. Karim Lgaye, has addressed the United nations Security Council after laying charges alleging Portugal was involved in last year's invasion of Guinea.

    Mr. Lgaye called for the world body to take effective measures, and reminded members that, in responses to a 1968 Senegalese complaint, they served notice on Portugal that other steps would be taken in case of a repetition.

    Portugal which rules he territory of Guinea-Bissaw bordering Senegal, has denied the Senegalese charges of incursions and the placing of mines in he frontier areas.

    In response to a complaint last year that Portuguese troops committed aggression against the Republic of Guinea, the Council sent a fact finding team to the area and after accepting its conclusions issued a condemnation of Portugal. Senegal is believed to want no fact finding mission in the current case, but outright condemnation of Portugal. Mr. Lgaye said they committed along list of violations of Senegalese territorial integrity and that the "acts of aggression" had escalated.
