The Rhodesian Patriotic Front leader, Mr. Joshua Nkomo, has said that conditions have not changed enough to warrant the reconvening of the Geneva peace conference on south west Africa. He was speaking in London on Friday (6 May) where he had had talks with British Foreign Secretary, Dr. David Owen. After the meeting he talked with Peter Whittle of Visnews, about the current situation in Rhodesia.
Mr. Nkomo said the United States had withdrawn its offer to co-sponsor a new Geneva conference. He said the United States Secretary of State, Cyrus Vance, had told him that the United States would offer to assist Britain in other ways to reach a settlement, but he did not say what this would entail. Mr. Nkomo met Mr. Vance in London on the same day.
