Reaffirms the inalienable right of the people of Namibia to self-determination, freedom and national independence in a united Namibia; reiterates that, in accordance with its resolution 2145 (XXI), Namibia is the direct responsibility of the UN and, for this reason, reaffirms the mandate given to the UN Council for Namibia as the legal Administering Authority for Namibia until independence; also reaffirms that SWAPO is the sole and authentic representative of the Namibian people; calls upon the Security Council to declare categorically that Walvis Bay is an integral part of Namibia; reaffirms that the UN plan for the independence of Namibia is the only internationally accepted basis for a peaceful settlement of the Namibian question; declares that all so-called laws and proclamations issued by the illegal occupation régime in Namibia are illegal, null and void; strongly rejects and condemns the persistent attempts made by the Pretoria régime and its allies to establish a "linkage" between the implementation of Security Council resolution 435 (1978) and extraneous and irrelevant issues, particularly the presence of Cuban forces in Angola, which is a matter to be decided soley by that independent and sovereign State, strongly condemns the activities of all foreign economic interests operating in Namibia which are illegally exploiting the resources of the Territory.
