United Press International

Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev met today with African National Congress President Oliver Tambo and pledged the Soviet Union's support in the ANC's battle to overthrow the South African system of apartheid.

Tass, the official press agency, said both leaders denounced the U.S. policy of constructive engagement with Pretoria and Washington's interference in the internal affairs of neighboring Angola through its support of Jonas Savimbi's UNITA rebel group.
