  • Description

    British Deputy Foreign Secretary David Ennals arrived in Rhodesia on Sunday (29 June) for talks with Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian Smith and black Nationalist leaders.

    The talks were aimed at securing agreement on a venue and date for a Rhodesian constitutional conference. On his arrival at Salisbury airport, Mr. Ennals was met by Foreign Minister Mr. Pieter van Der Byl. Mr. Ennals visited Rhodesia at the end of a tour of Southern Africa which included the independence celebrations in Mozambique.

    Mr. Ennals spent several hours with Mr. Smith before meeting delegates of the African National Council (AND). The five-man ANC delegation was led by the organisation's President, Bishop Abel Muzorewa.

    Mr. Ennals left Salisbury on Monday (30 June), for London. He told reporters he was satisfied that Rhodesia's white minority government and African leaders wanted negotiation to settle the country's constitutional dispute.
