New Republic;6/24/78, Vol. 178 Issue 25, p8
The article focuses on the foreign policy of the U.S. and France towards Africa. U.S. President Jimmy Carter and French President Giscard d'Estaing proposed in a meeting held in Washington in June that the NATO powers should intervene only when asked by the Africans themselves. They also decided to provide logistical support to a non-existent Pan-African Regional Military Force. The U.S. held responsible Cubans for the recent invasion of Zaire's Shaba province.
