    TRANSCRIPT:



    Question: "You are host to trained bands of guerrillas, or freedom fighters, and you have on your doorstep the People's Republic of Zanzibar, where an armed build-up is taking shape. Are you confident that you will be allowed to remain at peace, and non-aligned yourselves?



    Nyerere: I am quite confident that attempts may be made from those interested in taking part in the cold war to smother the non-aligned countries. Attempts will be made, but we will make a jolly good attempt to remain non-aligned. At least I can say that.



    Question:You don't fear that Zanzibar may start to export revolution?



    Nyerere: Why? -- I have no such fear."

    Background: Tanganyika has recently said good-bye to British troops who were called in last January when part of the Tanganyikan Army mutinied. The mutiny by the Tanganyikan army followed closely behind the Zanzibar revolution when the Arab dominated government of the Sultan was replaced by the left-wing government of President Karume.

    Tanganyika soon recognised the new regime in Zanzibar, but our correspondent asked President Nyerere if Zanzibar was not a threat to Tanganyika's security.
