The government has agreed to principles negotiated in New York to remove foreign troops from Angola and grant independence to South-West Africa, the Department of Foreign Affairs announced Wednesday.

The governments of Angola, Cuba and the United States were expected to make similar announcements, agreeing to a list of 14 principles signed by negotiators from the four countries in peace talks last week.The principles include acceptance of a withdrawal of Cuban troops from Angola and implementation of a U.N. peace plan for South-West Africa, which includes South African withdrawal from the territory it rules.

A call for South African withdrawal of an estimated 3,000 troops from Angola was not specifically contained in the principles made public here.
