  • Description

    Michael Stewart, the Foreign Secretary of Great Britain, spoke Friday morning (12 November) in the emergency session of the Security Council called to discuss the Rhodesian crisis. Mr. Stewart told the Council the steps his government had taken to deal with the crisis.

    Mr. Steward said his government had refused to recognise the Smith government in Rhodesia and asked that all U.N. members similarly refrain from extending recognition. He said his government would not honour Rhodesian passports and hoped that all U.N. members would be the same.

    Having described the severing of diplomatic relations, Mr. Stewart said his government had embargoed all arms shipments to Rhodesia and urged U.N. members to follow suit.

    He noted that his government had cut off the flow of capital and financial aid to Rhodesian and had exiled the area from the sterling block. He urged U.N. members to similarly boycott the territory economically.
