S Africa supports anti terrorism measures

South Africa has reaffirmed its support for President Bush's international coalition against terrorism and said it had agreed to several specific forms of assistance.

The Deputy Foreign Minister, Aziz Pahad, said South Africa had commited itself to improving airport security and border controls and to working more with other agencies to control the movement of suspected terrorists and to extradite those identified as members of terrorist networks.

He said the moves were part of South Africa's long term strategy to deal with terrorism and to help the United States ensure that last week's attacks were never repeated. Mr Pahad said investigations into the attacks had so far not provided any clues leading to South Africa.

But he warned that South Africa should not be complacent.
