Reaffirms the inalienable right of the Namibian people to self-determination, freedom and national independence in an untruncated territory including Walvis Bay, the Penguin Islands and all adjacent offshore islands in accordance with the Charter of the UN and General Assembly resolution 1514 (XV) of 14 Dec. 1960, as well as the subsequent relevant resolutions and decisions of the Assembly and the Security Council; demands once again that the apartheid régime of South Africa immediately and unconditionally withdraw its illegal administration, occupation army and police force from Namibia; calls upon the UN Council for Namibia to take immediate practical measures to establish its Administration in Namibia in accordance with General Assembly resolutions 2248 (S-V) of 19 May 1967 and 40/97 of 13 Dec. 1985; emphasizes once again that the only parties to the conflict in Namibia are, on the one hand, the Namibian people represented by the SWAPO, their sole and authentic representative, and, on the other, the racist régime of South Africa, which illegally occupies the Territory; reiterates its call upon the international community to extend, as a matter of urgency, all support and assistance to the front-line States in order to enable them to defend their sovereignty and territorial integrity against the repeated acts of aggression by South Africa; reaffirms that the UN plan for the independence of Namibia, contained in Security Council resolutions 385 (1976) and 435 (1978), is the only internationally accepted basis for peaceful settlement of the question of Namibia, and demands its immediate implementation without pre-condition or modification; calls upon South Africa to desist from linking the independence of Namibia to irrelevant and extraneous issues such as the presence of Cuban troops in Angola as such linkage is incompatible with the relevant UN resolutions, particularly Security Council resolution 435 (1978); strongly rejects the policies of "constructive engagement" and "linkage", which have served to encourage the racist régime of South Africa to continue its illegal occupation of Namibia, and calls for their abandonment so that UN resolutions and decisions on the question of Namibia can be implemented; calls upon the Security Council to convene urgently to take action for the immediate and unconditional implementation of the UN plan for the independence of Namibia, endorsed by Council resolution 435 (1978).
