    TRANSCRIPT (SEQ 5):



    DE CUELLAR: "I have already expressed my condemnation and concern about the situation in Lesotho and I intend to keep in touch with the countries which I think have not only an interest in a solution of the problem to liberate Namibia from the country, South Africa, the country which is held responsible for these policies in order that they accept the real question of them and that they put an end to this situation."

    Background: The United Nations Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar said on February 8 any link between the presence of Cuban troops in Angola and independence for Namibia (south-west Africa) was unacceptable. He was speaking at a news conference at Dar es Salaam airport in Tanzania. Earlier Mr. de Cuellar held talks with President Julius Nyerere at State House, in the capital. Their main topic was independence for Namibia. The U.N. has demanded the removal of South African troops from Namibia, but South Africa has refused to comply until all Cuban troops leave Angola. Mr. de Cuellar said to consider the presence of Cuban troops in Angola as a pre-condition to negotiations for independence was unacceptable from the U.N.'s point of view. He said the question of Cuban troops was a matter of bilateral relations between Angola and Cuba, while the Namibian question was an exclusive responsibility of the United Nations. Mr. de Cuellar flew from Dar es Salaam to Zanzibar for a one-day visit.
