  • Description

    The United States Senate on Tuesday (15 May) voted overwhelmingly to lift the sanctions on Rhodesia. This move on the part of the Senate reportedly adds a further embarrassment for President Jimmy Carter. The President had wanted through Secretary of State Cyrus Vance to first sound out British reactions to the elections in Rhodesia. The British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher had not announced a decision as talks began in Salisbury between British envoy Sir Anthony Duff and black and white leaders. It is reported that Rhodesians have pinned their hopes on Washington, rather than London, for the first moves towards recognition. The BBC's Clive Small reports from Washington.
