(Maputo, Mozambique) 2 major issues at conference are isolation of Rhodesia and South Africa and demand that West ntns. should observe United Nations sanctions against them. There's also fear of superpower rivalry that's made United States part in negotiations suspect. Young meets with SWAPO leader Sam Nujoma, who believes United States participation aimed more to keeping USSR out, than to getting major rule. After meeting, Nujoma says United States participation useful and constructive. Young brings degree of credibility to Maputo that US policy has lacked.
