Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta MITCHELL SHARP Sharp likes views By DAN TURNER ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast (GP) - External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp expressed himself as "quite impressed" with President Felix Houphouet-Boigny's dovish views on dealing with racism in southern Africa. The Ivory Coast leader, with whom Sharp talked for more than an hour on the first stop of a five-country African tour, advocates that black Africa involve itself in a "dialogue" rather than a confrontation with white-minority governments in South Africa, Rhodesia and the Portuguese colonies. His approach differs significantly from those of Presidents Julius Nyerere of Tanzania and Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia, with whom the minister will visit later in the tour. Houpbouet-Boigny, Sharp said, came across as a man dedicated to doing everything he can to promote the economic development of Africa. His point in favor of dialogue and negotiation over apartheid and Portuguese colonialism is that Africa (cannot afford a war. Sharp said methods of Canada assisting with such a dialogue had not been discussed. Sunday, Sharp had suggested that Canada might be helpful since it maintains a mission within South Africa. DRAWS COMPARISON An aide to Sharp said that Houphouet-Boigny compared the southern African situation with the Middle East, with black countries in a similar position to that of the Arab countries contending with Israel. Sharp said Canada would not take sides in any black African dispute over how the southern African situation should be resolved. Both Tanzania and Zambia I house southern African liberation groups currently active in | Mozambique, Angola, Guinea-Bissau and Rhodesia. The aide said the Ivorian minister's arguments were based on | the premise that the most important concern in black Afric* is development. Sharp said it is Houphouet-Boigny's belief that black Afrina will get neither development nor equality if it tries to overthrow the white-minority regimes with | violence. BIG GAINS MADE Liberation movements have made significant military gains in the three Portuguese colonies, but have been relatively ineffective in Rhodesia and inactive in South Africa. Sharp said Canada will be favorably disposed towards a request by the Ivorian president that it become involved in an education project-perhaps a technical school. Canada's aid commitment to the Ivory Coast this year is $4,610,000 including assistance for the construction of a national library in Abidjan and for the extension of a power line from Kosscu Dam in the interior. Houphouet-Boigny asked that Canada be more liberal in allowing developing countries to spend percentages of development loans locally, rather than in buying equipment from Canada. Sharp said Canada intends to take a more flexible position on the tying of aid.
