Pretoria accepts UN report

JOHANNESBURG (Reuter) - The South African government accepted a United Nations report on ways to end township violence, saying yesterday it would welcome the stationing of observers in the country.

'The resolution is acceptable in its main components,' the Foreign Minister, Pik Botha, said in a statement. 'Blame is not apportioned to any party . . . The need is emphasised to strengthen South African structures such as the National Peace Accord. So is the importance of co-operation of all parties in the resumption of the negotiation process as speedily as possible,' Mr Botha added.
