    Background: President Kamuzu Banda of Malawi announced on Friday (2 July) that the would make a state visit to South Africa next month. He told Parliament that he believed in contact and dialogue as a means of ending apartheid in South Africa.

    Dr. Banda has been a consistent supporter of dialogue with South Africa, and malawi was one of the six states to vote against the Organisation for African Unity resolution last month saying that no basis existed for a meaningful dialogue with South Africa.

    This library film shows Mr. John Vorster, South Africa's Prime Minister, arriving in Malawi in May 1970 for two days of talks with Dr. Banda. It was Mr. Vorster's first visit to an independent black African state.
