  • Description

    Zambian Foreign Minister Rupiah Banda has called for the cessation of what he termed "the exploitation of the tragic Angolan situation."
    Speaking in the Zambian capital of Lusaka, Mr. Banda, said that there had recently been criticism "from certain quarters in Zambian society" of his government's policy towards Angola.

    However, the Foreign Minister said he believed the Zambian policy was correct because it discriminated against none of the movements involved in the Angolan war.

    He said the Zambian policy sought to avoid the senseless suffering of the Angolan people. The Foreign Minister added that Zambia would like to see a prosperous and unite Angola, "free from the senseless destruction that is now going on."
    Later, he said that the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) could do little to change the situation in Angola.

    This film is serviced with part of the speech made by Mr. Banda. The speech extract is in English, a transcript of which follows overleaf.
