  • Description

    The United Nations Security Council had deferred a decision on the proposed appointment of a U.N. Representative for Rhodesia, after the Rhodesian nationalist leader. Joshua Nkomo, raised unexpected conditions. At a meeting of the Council on Wednesday (28 September) Mr. Nkomo, the co-Chairman of the Patriotic Front, said the Representative must be named by the Secretary General in close consultation with the Council, and with the parties to the Rhodesian conflict. And Mr. Nkomo said the duties, powers and functions of the Representative must be worked out in the same way. In spite of speeches in favour of nominating a representative by Mr. Andrew Young, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, and other delegates, a decision was postponed.

    SYNOPSIS: Britain and the US remain hopeful that a representative will be agreed soon, despite the reservations explained by Mr. Nkomo.

    Then it was Mr, Young's turn to speak.
