President Hage Geingob says that Namibia does not regret its decision to abstain from the United Nations General Assembly resolution vote condemning Russia’s actions and calling for the withdrawal of its forces in Ukraine earlier this year. Speaking at the opening of the third Swapo party policy conference on Friday, Geingob said Namibia’s liberation struggle was part of a glorious past that should not be forgotten, and that that includes the help offered by countries such as Russia, as well as Cuba, China, Zambia, Tanzania, and Angola. “We will be stupid not to thank those who were there when times were hard,” Geingob insisted.
