Letter: All welcome - except blacks

WE ALL wish the new government of South Africa every success, but let's hope that the United Nations arms embargo remains in place. In October 1993 the European Union lifted an eight-year ban on military contacts with South Africa, and at the end of February 1994 a Royal Navy frigate and supply ship stopped at Cape Town. The visit was described as a renewal of military ties between the UK and South Africa.

A small group, Peace Visions, whose patrons include Archbishop Tutu, argues that future South African governments should spend money to meet social needs and not on the military.
