Castro: Cubans in Angola would resist S. Africans

President Fidel Castro said that Cuban troops in Angola would strongly resist any invasion of the country by South Africa.

He also said that the Cuban troops would stay in Angola until South Africa pulled out of Namibia (South-West Africa), although he added that the Angolan government had ruled out any linkage between the two withdrawals.

Also reported Tuesday: Cuba has received advanced models of the MIG-23 fighter-bomber from the Soviet Union since the beginning of the year as part of a continuing buildup that has created concern in the Reagan administration, Pentagon officials said.
