   The talks proceeded in a cordial and friendly atmosphere. During the talks the two sides had a full exchange of views on international issues of common interest and on the further development of friendly relations and co-operation between the two countries, and satisfactory results were achieved.
   The two sides noted with great satisfaction that there has been a rapid development in the friendly relations and co-operation between China and Zambia in the political, economic, trade and cultural fields since the two countries established diplomatic relations. During His Excellency President Kenneth David Kaunda*s current visit, China and Zambia have signed an agreement on economic and technical co-operation, which will further promote the development of the friendly relations and co-operation between the two countries. The two sides have agreed to exert every effort to consolidate and develop the friendly relations between China and Zambia and strengthen the friendship between the two peoples.
   The Chinese side reaffirms its full respect for the policy of non-alignment pursued by the Government of Zambia in international affairs, and its firm support for the struggle waged by the Republic of Zambia under the leadership of His Excellency President Kaunda to safeguard national independence and state sovereignty, to develop national economy and culture and to oppose imperialism, colonialism, neo-colonialism and racial discrimination. The Chinese side warmly commends the contributions made by the Zambian Government and people in supporting the African national-liberation movement and promoting Afro-Asian solidarity.
   The two sides strongly oppose the British connivance with the Rhodesian and other colonial authorities in perpetuating white domination south of the Zambezi.
   The Chinese side firmly supports the Government and people of Zambia in their just struggle against the British Government's Rhodesian policy and the Rhodesian colonial authorities.
   The Zambian side extends warm congratulations upon the great victories of the great proletarian cultural revolution initialed and led personally by Chairman Mao Tse-tung, the great leader of the Chinese people. It highly appraises the great achievements won by the Chinese people in the cause of socialist construction. It reaffirms its support for the restoration of the legitimate rights of the People's Republic of China in the United Nations, its opposition to all schemes of creating "'two Chinas." and its support for the Chinese people in their just struggle to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity. The Chinese side expresses its thanks for all this.
   The Zambian side warmly congratulates China on the successful explosion of her first hydrogen bomb and regards this as a tremendous contribution to the safeguarding of world peace. The two sides express their willingness to work together with all tho other peace-loving people and countries of the world for the noble aim of completely prohibiting and thoroughly destroying nuclear weapons.
   Both sides maintain that the destiny of mankind should never be controlled by one or two powers which have a monopoly of nuclear weapons, but should be decided by all countries in the world.
   The two sides are of the opinion that the present world situation is most favourable to the peoples of Asia, Africa and Latin America in their struggle to oppose imperialism, colonialism and neo-colonialism and to win and safeguard national independence. The two sides note with pleasure that they have been constantly winning new and great victories.
   The two sides note with satisfaction that the national-liberation movement in Africa is unfolding in greater depth and breadth. Those African countries which have already won national independence have scored constant new victories in safeguarding national independence, developing national economy and culture. The African peoples who are still under colonial rule are waging heroic struggle for national independence. Although the struggles in some areas have suffered setbacks, they are only temporary. No force can ever hold back the historical torrent of the national-liberation movement.
   The two sides stress that imperialism and colonialism will never be reconciled to their defeat and step down from the stage of history of their own accord, but are exerting their utmost to launch frenzied counter-attacks against the anti-imperialist revolutionary forces of the people in Asia and Africa by resorting to all kinds of tactics, such as military aggression, political subversion and economic infiltration. Therefore, the peoples of Asia and Africa must sharpen their vigilance and unswervingly carry the anti-imperialist and anti-colonialist struggle through to the end. The two sides firmly believe that so long as the peoples of Asia and Africa strengthen their unity and persevere in struggle, they will surely win final victory. Africa will definitely become the African people's Africa and Asia the Asian people's Asia.
   The two sides discussed with concern the situation in the Middle East. The Chinese side strongly condemns U.S. and British imperialism and their lackey Israel for the war of aggression they hove launched against the Arab states, and firmly supports the Arab people in their just struggle against imperialist aggression. The Zambian side holds the view that any troops occupying foreign territory as a result of the war must be withdrawn to the positions they occupied before the outbreak of the war. The two sides firmly believe that final victory will certainly belong to the Arab people.
   The two sides express great concern over the Vietnam question. The Chinese side resolutely supports the heroic Vietnamese people in their struggle against U.S. aggression and for national salvation, strongly condemns U.S. imperialism for its frenzied act of expanding the war of aggression in Vietnam, firmly demands that the troops of the United States and its vassals must withdraw from south Vietnam completely, and holds that the South Vietnam National Front for Liberation must be recognized as the sole genuine representative of the south Vietnamese people. The two sides are of the opinion that the Vietnamese peoples basic national rights, namely, independence, sovereignty, unification and territorial integrity, must be respected and that the Vietnam question should be settled by the Vietnamese people themselves.
   The two sides firmly support the people of Mozambique, Angola, Guinea (Bissau), Southwest Africa, Swaziland, French Somaliland and other African countries still under colonial rule in their struggle for national independence.
   The two sides strongly condemn the colonial authorities in Rhodesia and South Africa for their policies of racial discrimination and apartheid. They firmly support the people of Zimbabwe and South Africa in their just struggle against racial discrimination and for national liberation.
   The two sides hold that in order to consolidate national independence and thoroughly liquidate the imperialist forces, the Afro-Asian countries, must develop their national economy in accordance with the principle of mainly relying on their own efforts. They are deeply convinced that the Afro-Asian countries are able to build up their own countries by relying on the strength of their own people and resources. The Afro-Asian countries should support each other on the basis of equality and mutual benefit so as to promote their common economic prosperity. They do not exclude the development of trade and economic co-operation with countries in other parts of the world. But all foreign aid must conform to the principle of equality and mutual benefit Without any privileges or political conditions being attached.
   The two sides note with satisfaction that His Excellency President Kenneth David Kaunda's current visit to China has enhanced the friendship and mutual understanding between the people of the two countries, Ushered in a new stage of development in the relations of friendship and co-operation between the two countries and made important contributions to the strengthening of Afro-Asian solidarity.
   His Excellency President Kenneth David Kaunda of the Republic of Zambia extended an invitation to Premier Chou En-lai of the State Council of the People's Republic of China for a visit to the Republic of Zambia at a time convenient to him. Premier Chou En-lai accepted the invitation with pleasure.
