    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 2: WALDHEIM: "We have to be careful and I have to warn you the public and the mass media in general tend to create the impression that we are near the resumption of the negotiating process. I wish to tell you that this in not the case. I have said only recently in a public statement that there are many open questions which have to be resolved before we can go back to the Geneva conference table. I therefore do not feel that the conference can be resumed before the second half of this year."



    Mr. Waldheim also spoke about the problems of southern Africa.



    SEQ. 4: WALDHEIM: "As far as the situation in southern Africa is concerned you are fully aware through the reports in the mass media that we have there a very dangerous situation The efforts undertaken by several governments and by the United Nations have failed until now to find a solution to this problem. But I can assure you that we are continuing all our efforts in order to find a positive solution of these problems on the basis of majority rule in Rhodesia and in Namibia."
