  • Description

    The People's Republic of China has formally aligned itself with black Africans in their conflicts with white-dominated southern Africa. At the United Nations Security Council meeting in Addis Ababa on Monday (January 31), its delegate told the session--first in Africa and first out of New York for 20 years--that the Peking Government would stand behind the Africans of Rhodesia, South Africa, South West Africa and Portuguese Africa "in their struggle against imperialism".

    At the same meeting the Yugoslav delegate--also shown speaking in this film--pointed out that the importance of African problems was recognised by the Security Council.

    SYNOPSIS: At Monday's sitting of the special session of the United Nations Security Council in Addis Ababa. Ethiopia, the People's Republic of China formally aligned itself with black Africans in white-dominated southern Africa.

    The Chinese ambassador to the United Nations, Mr. Huang Hua, said his Government firmly supported the black Africans in Portuguese Africa, South Africa, Rhodesia, and South West Africa in what he called "their struggle against white colonialist rule and racial discrimination".

    The African members of the Security Council, meanwhile, were preparing the draft of a resolution calling upon Britain to convene a round-table conference with black and white Rhodesians under the auspices of the United Nations. Support for African problems also came from the Yugoslav delegate, Mr. Lazar Mojsov, who followed Mr. Huang.
