TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 2: KAUNDA: "I must say yes because it would appear to me that the Prime Minister has this feeling, obviously a very strong feeling, that African leaders from the O.A.U. and non-aligned nations were coming here to tell him what to do. I don't know how he got this idea. I tried to explain several times that this in fact was not the case; and I didn't seem to be breaking through at all.
REPORTER: So you really did walk out on the Prime Minister?
KAUNDA: Well, again perhaps, walk-out is not the correct word. I should say that it wasn't a happy ending."
