S. Africa warns Andrew Young

I

JOHANNESBURG, S o u t h
Africa (W) - A proposed visit
by U. N. Ambassador Andrew
Young stirred a diplomatic
storm yesterday in South Africa,
but the U. S. State Department
said he would go ahead with it
anyway.
Foreign Minister R. F. Botha
said Young should clarify the
purpose of a proposed trip and
use appropriate channels to ar-
range it. le said South Africa
is "a proud nation . . . not pre-
pared to crawl before the Unit-
ed States, least of all before Mr.
Andrew Young."
BOTHA'S REMARK, made in
an interview with the South Af-
rican Broadcast Corp., follow-
ed his earlier statement that
Young's visit on May 19-20, un-
officially reported to include
talks with black leaders, would
"not be convenient."
Young, commenting on the
South African reaction, said in
New York he was more con-
cerned about blacks being up-
set than whites and that he had
"not even began to consider"
whom he would meet beyond
the bsinesspersons and stu-
dents who invited him. ,
An aide to Botha, asked whe-
ther the foreign minister's state-
ment meant Young is banned
from entering the country, said,
"The door is still open."
BOTHA APPEARED to imply
that South Africa has no objec-
tion to Young's plans to meet
business leaders and speak to
white students at the Univer-
sity of Witwatersrand in Jo-
hannesburg later this month.
But the foreign minister's dip-
lomatic feathers were appar-
ently ruffled by press reports
quoting U. S. officials at the
United Nations saying Young
also would like to visit black
leaders while here.
His statement that, the visit
would not be convenient was in-
terpreted by observers in Jo-
hannesburg as a diplomatic
holding move and a rebuff of
Young's handling of the pro-
posed visit..

OBSERVERS ALSO suggested
that Botha, campaigning in Jo-
hannesburg in a special local
election for a seat in parlia-
ment, was aiming his statement
primarily at a domestic audi-
ence for its political appeal.
In New York, Young com-
mented:
"I'm always nervous about,
relations with South Africa,

knowing that anything I say is
going to make somebody upset.
I'm more concerned about
blacks being upset.
"MY POSITION is essentially
a moderate position most blacks
there will not like . . . I'm only
interested- in South Africa in
avoiding unnecessary blood-
shed, whether it be black or

wkite. They can avoid it, and if
I gan help I'll be glad to."
Botha's statement issued by
his office in Cape Town said
the U. S. State Department gave
South African officials in Wash-
ington one reason for the trip
while Young's aides in New
York were telling journalists
something else.
