The U.N. Security Council unanimously approved a resolution aimed at closing Rhodesian government information offices abroad.

Rhodesia maintains information offices in Sydney, Australia, and Washington, D.C. An office in paris was closed by the French government in February.

Meanwhile, in a speech in Salisbury, Rowan Cronje, Rhodesian minister of manpower and social affairs, accused the United States of "blatant hypocrisy" in dealing with southern Africa. He compared U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Andres Young to Ugandan President Idi Amin.

His speech coincided with the third round of talks between Rhodesian officials and a four-man U.S.-Brirish diplomatic team on a negotiated transfer of power from Rhodesia's 270,000 whites to the country's 6 million blacks.

In Cape Town, South Africa Prime Minister John Vorster, reporting to Parliament on his talks with Vice President Walter Mandale, said a gulf separated South Africa and the United States over the issue of one man, one vote. South Africa totally rejected this concept, he said.

In Windhoek, Namibia (Southwest Africa), four church leaders alleged that torture was standard practice during questioning of detainees. The charge was made in a statement signed by Roman Catholic, Anglican and Evangelican Lutheran church leaders. Police called the charge "unfounded."
