Angola is willing to have Cuban troops withdrawn from its soil if the United States and South Africa end support for right-wing Angolan rebels, the official ANGOP news agency said, quoting Foreign Minister Afonso Van-Dunem. The report also listed other longstanding Angolan demands for a regional peace settlement, including withdrawal of South African military forces from southern Angola, and independence for Namibia. Angola previously had offered to remove Cuban troops from the southern part of the country and send two-thirds of them home. There are an estimated 35,000 Cubans in Angola.
