  • Description

    After a week of shuttle diplomacy around southern Africa, Britain's new Foreign Secretary, Dr. David Owen, arrived back home on Monday (18 April). He had visited eight African countries -- including Rhodesia -- in an effort to find a plan for defusing and settling the explosive situation caused by the breakaway British colony.

    SYNOPSIS: Dr. Owen and his wife, who had been with him on the trip, arrived at London's Heathrow Airport, and immediately held a news conference in the airport lounge. During the tour he had put forward the possibility of convening a constitutional conference under the auspices of Britain and the United States. He was, however, keen to emphasise the difficulties.
