    INTRODUCTION British negotiator Ivor Richard flew into Dar es-Salaam on Tuesday (11 January) for a second round of talks on Rhodesia with Tanzanian President Julius Nyerere before e?barking on the final stage of his African shuttle mission.

    SYNOPSIS: Mr. Richard came from a meeting in Lusaka, Zambia with leaders of Rhodesia's "Patriotic Front" which has recently received the full backing of black Africa's "Front Line" states. The Patriotic Front is headed by Mr. Robert Mugabe and Mr Joshua Nkomo.

    The meeting between Mr Richard and President Nyerere took place at the British High Commission building in Dar es-Salaam. President Nyerere is Chairman of the "Front Line" group and its generally accepted to be one of the most influential black African leaders involved in the Rhodesia issue.

    At an earlier meeting with President Nyerere Mr Richard was promised that the guerrilla war in ??? could stop once true majority rule had been achieved there. Informed sources quoted by Reuters news agency say that this statement could be very significant, because it seemed to go a long way towards providing the kind of assurances sought by South African Premier John Vorster in return for his putting pressure on the Rhodesian white minority to accept a settlement.
