  • Description

    President Julius Nyerere of Tanzania made his optimistic forecast that white Rhodesians would accept the so-called Henry Kissinger peace plan by Friday (September 24) after a lengthy briefing session by the U. S. State Secretary on Monday (September 21).

    SYNOPSIS: It was Dr. Kissinger's second visit to Tanzania, where he originally started his multi-nation peace tour. Monday's visit was to brief President Nyerere on his talks in the South African capital with Prime Minister Mr. John Vorster and Rhodesian leader Mr. Ian Smith. His peace plan, drawn up in conjunction with Britain, and taken back to Rhodesia by Mr. Smith for discussions with his cabinet and party colleagues, proposes black majority rule within two years or so, with the immediate setting up of a transitional government. Whites would have their assets guaranteed outside Rhodesia if they stayed in the country for a few years after independence to help hand over the economy.

    President Nyerere gave a warm welcome to the State Secretary who was travelling on to Zaire later that day.

    After his briefing, President Nyerere said his optimistic forecast was based on what Dr. Kissinger told him. But he did express doubts about Mr. Smith.
