United Nations Office at Geneva addressed
to the Secretariat
The Permanent Mission of the Republic of South Africa presents its compliments to the Secretariat of the United Nations and has the honour to refer to the latter's Note G/SO 214 (47-9) of 7 January 1994 and would be grateful if the following reply could be transmitted to Mr. Mikuin Leliel Balanda, Chairman of the Ad Hoc Working Group of Experts on southern Africa.
The Permanent Mission would further be grateful if both these communications could be circulated as documents of the current session of the Commission for Human Rights.
Dear Mr. Balanda,
I wish to acknowledge receipt, on his behalf, of your letter G/SO 214 (47-9) of 7 January 1994 addressed to the South African Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. R. F. Botha.
The South African Government has no objection to a visit to South Africa by the "Ad Hoc Working Group of Experts". Please take up contact with the Permanent Mission so that a mutually convenient date for such a visit can be decided upon, which will ensure that such a visit will be of maximum value both to the United Nations and to the democratization process in South Africa.
Please accept, Mr. Balanda, the assurance of my highest consideration.
(Signed) AMBASSADOR RIAAN EKSTEEN
PERMANENT REPRESENTATIVE OF THE
REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AFRICA
