South Africa Today April 9, 1961

Ambassador W.C. Naude, April 9, 1961

“South Africa would like to be left alone to solve her unique racial problems while continuing as a beacon of Western civilization that we intend to keep alight in Africa.”

“Most Americans simply don’t understand our policy of apartheid. The apartheid policy in South Africa is a traditional separateness and a positive policy to protect the interests of the weaker citizens. The economically weak and primitive Bantu quite possibility would have gone to the wall except for that protective policy.”

“South Africa has contributed substantially to the security of the Western world. Today we are maintaining an undisturbed, peaceful sector of Africa. I ask you to think what a frightened problem the Congo has become for the Western world. ”
