    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 2): QUAISON-SACKEY:"PERHAPS AS SHE DID IN THE CASE OF HER COMMONWEALTH MEMBERSHIP, SOUTH AFRICA WILL QUIT THE ORGANISATION BEFORE SHE IS THROWN OUT. THIS WOULD NOT RESULT IN FRAGMENTATION OF OUR ORGANISATION. IT SHOULD NOT BE FORGOTTEN THAT SOUTH AFRICA WITHDREW HER DELEGATION FROM THE ELEVENTH SESSION OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY IN PROTEST AGAINST THE DISCUSSION OF THEIR RACIAL POLICIES. AS FAR AS THE AFRICANS ARE CONCERNED, WE SHALL CONTINUE TO PRESS AND FIGHT FOR THE TOTAL ELIMINATION FROM THE CONTINENT OF AFRICA OF THIS INHUMAN AND GRIM DOCTRINE OF APARTHEID AND ALL ITS ATTENDANT EVILS.



    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 4): STEVENSON: I AM NOW AUTHORIZED TO INFORM THE SECURITY COUNCIL OF STILL ANOTHER IMPORTANT STEP WHICH MY GOVERNMENT IS PREPARED TO TAKE. WE EXPECT TO BRING TO AN END THE SALE OF ALL MILITARY EQUIPMENT TO THE GOVERNMENT OF SOUTH AFRICA BY THE END OF THIS CALENDAR YEAR. IN ORDER FURTHER TO CONTRIBUTE TO A PEACEFUL SOLUTION AND TO AVOID ANY STEPS WHICH MIGHT AT THIS POINT DIRECTLY CONTRIBUTE TO INTERNATIONAL FRICTION IN THE AREA.
