The World : Angola Bars Namibia Deal

March 06, 1986

Angola rejected a South African proposal to begin implementing a U.N. plan for the independence of Namibia provided that Cuban troops leave Angola. The official Angolan news agency, commenting on a speech by South African President Pieter W. Botha, said South Africa is just delaying Namibia's independence "to continue exploiting its (mineral) riches and the Namibian people." South Africa administers the territory, also known as South-West Africa, in defiance of U.N. resolutions.
