SV: Montoneros spokesman, Roberto Vendrell speaking in English.
VENDRELL: "The Montoneros terrorist movement of Argentina denounces the advance and the planning of so-called white settlements from Rhodesia in northern Argentina. We want to point out that this is not an isolated act, but forms part of the results of different meeting, both public and secret, between the oppressors of Zimbabwe and the fascists of Argentina. In fact it is only one minor step in a series of agreements, which include military, commercial and other issues. In the military field the advance agreements point towards the establishment of a South Atlantic Treaty Organisation, which would include the navies of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, the United States and that of South Africa. It is unnecessary to stress the threat that this mean,s, both to the liberation movements of Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa and to all the fr??? line states in southern Africa. To confront the danger of this new complex we call on all progressive governments and liberation movements to denounce these reactionary facts to world opinion before this threat becomes an all-out military aggression. On our side, as the liberation movement of our country our permanent compromise is to intensify the struggle of the Argentine people against the fascist military junta as the concrete expression of our solidarity with the African people."
Senor Vendrell also mentioned that "multi-national tobacco interests" were involved in the plans for White Rhodesians to settle in northern Argentina. He said that as a result of current negotiations the peasants of his country would suffer and that the combined Montoneros and majority of the Peronist Movement would continue their struggle against the ruling military junta in Argentina.
