Resolution on Angola
Meeting of the Socialist International Africa Committee, Maputo, Mozambique, 3-4 September 1999
The Socialist International Africa Committee, meeting in Maputo on 3-4 September 1999,
Considers that Jonas Savimbi, by his behaviour, as was recognised by both the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) and the South African Development Council (SADC), has ceased to be a valid interlocutor in finding a solution to the conflict in Angola;
Expresses its solidarity with the Angolan people and with their efforts to strengthen the democratic authority of the State through the establishment of peace and the indispensable political and diplomatic support; and
Declares its support for and solidarity with the Government of Angola in its efforts to affirm its authority in the whole territory and calls on all the member parties of the Socialist International to extend the humanitarian support which may be requested by the Angolan government.
