Requests the specialized agencies and other organizations within the UN system to render increased assistance to the people of Namibia; to increase their assistance to the front-line and neighbouring States and to the liberation movements in South Africa; to take all necessary measures to withhold any financial, economic, technical or other assistance from the Government of South Africa until that Government restores to the people of Namibia their inalienable right to self-determination and independence, and to refrain from taking any action that might imply recognition of, or support for, the illegal occupation of Namibia by that régime; to intensify their support for the oppressed people of South Africa and to take such measures as will totally isolate the apartheid régime and mobilize world public opinion against apartheid; recommend that a separate item on assistance to national liberation movements recognized by the OAU be included in the agenda of future high-level meetings of the OAU and of the UN; urges those organizations that have not yet granted full membership to the UN Council for Namibia to do so without delay.
