    MR. EKANGAKI: "The ending of the war in Vietnam, and the importance that signifies for Africa and for the world and, naturally, very important the situation here in North Africa and the Middle East, where, the spite of past resolutions of the United Nations General Assembly and the Security Council, Israel has made no move whatsoever to withdraw from territory shoe occupied by force. We were able to tackle these problems and to make important resolutions on them, because we know that with the ending of the war in Vietnam, the situation here in the Middle East and the situation in Southern African should engage particularly the world's attention."
