Security council condemns Portugal SUZANNE CRONJE x London Observer Service LONDON The UN Secur- ity Council has again condemn- ed Portugal for acts of violence Senegal over the 300- mile border dividing Senegal from Portuguese Guinea. Por- tugal claims that Senegal pro- vides sanctuary and help to Ruerrfflae seeking to drive the Portliguwe out of their Afri- can territory. Lisbon also accuses Portu- guese Guinea's other neighbor, the independent Republic of Guinea, of supplying the guer- with military equipment. Ttte guerrillas belong to the PATGC Party for the Inde- pendence of Guinea and Cape Verde. It is the most success- ful liberation movement' in Af- rica. Ms leader, Amilcar Cab- ral, said dining a recent visit to London that his people now controlled two thirds of Port- uguese Guinea. "In my coun- he claimed, "the Portu- guese forces are paralysed in the urban centres. They have to use helicopters to supply their fortified camps." CLAIMS CONFIRMED Many PA1GC claims have been confirmed by foreign jour- nalists invited to visit liber- ated areas where the PAIGC AdtnitdstrstiOD runs educational and medical services as well as controlling and planning thp economy, claim to have biofceii up a Christmas offen- sive by guerrillas, killing 21S of them in a seven day battle 30 miles north east of Bissau the capital. The Portuguese, however, have also admitted that Cabral controls part of the country, though they put it at only 10 per cent. No doubt many districts are in dispute. With Portuguese armored con- voys using some roads in day- light in territory the guerrillas make unsafe at night. Lisbon has acknowledged that the PAIGC is capable of mounting attacks against Bissau and the second largest town, Bafata. Both have been shelled. A Portuguese spokesman has been quoted saying the war in Portuguese Guinea is no longer a defence against guerrillas but "a classical war against Com- munists" fighting for mainland areas as the first step towards capturing the strategic Cape Verde Islands. The PAIGC depends on arms and other assistance transport- ed across the borders of the Republic of Guinea and (though to a much lesser extent) Sene- gal. President Leopold Senghor of Senegal Js a moderate leader with dose Hes with Paris and an engrained suspicion of left- wing movements nnd Commu- nist governments. President Se- kou Toure of the Republic of Guinea is much more radical and often hysterical In his ac- cusations against the "NATO Imperialist" _ the Western countries allied with Portugal. In November, for instance, he threatened to invade Portu- guese Guinea if the 1970 Portu- guese assisted invaakn at- tempt of his country were re- peated: "If there is another at- tack the Guinean army will take, breakfast in (he leetaur- ants of the enemy capital." By contrast, Senghor, who has been trying for years to bring about a "dialogue" be- tween the Portuguese and the African nationalists, complains that every time he tries to pave the way for a peaceful solution new acts of aggression are committed by the Portuguese. Why have the Portuguese sin- gled oat Senegal for their at- tacks from Portuguese Guinea and accusations of aid to the liberation movement? They assert that 50 Cubans are train- ing guerrillas in Casamance Province, but Senegal has not even diplomatic relations with Cuba and is unlikely ever to permit the entry of Cuban guer- rillas into an area as political- ly sensitive as Casamance. This province is the lushest in the country and known as the Gran- ary. The population of Casa- mance often complain of be- ing neglected by the Senegal government and it has the po- tential of a radical opposition to Senghor's moderate regime Many PAIGC guerrillas hav family ties In Senegalese vil Uges. This has helped with the problem of refugees who s p i I across the border at times o intense fighting. A wave which came in July was esti mated at Tribal links make it also difficult to discov er FAIGC guerrillas who cross the border with hidden arms in the guise of ordinary villag ers. What Lisbon describes as "guerrilla bases" on Senegalese soil often turn out to be hospi tals or refugee centres super- vised by the UN High Commis- sion for Refugees and other in- ternational bodies. The Portuguese have been showering the border anas with leaflets inciting the local inhabitants against the PAIGC: Portuguese military attacks on the Senegalese border area are probably not aimed at the guer- rillas but intended to warn the villagers of the consequences of supporting the movement. It seems likely that these in- cidents do not so much repre- sent Lisbon policy as the fear of local military circles In Bis- sau of a peaceful settlement with Cabral which the colonial interests would consider as a sell out. Cabral announced la 1971 his willingness to negoti- ate on terms which EJJM save the Portuguese from an em- barrassing defeat. He has even hinted that he might be pre- pared Do abandon, at teait tem- porarily, claim to the Cape de islands, 400 miles off the coast, which are of strategic Importance to the Western world.
