  • Description

    British delegate Sir Colin Crowe and United States delegate George Bush both backed the activities of the Pearce Commission in Rhodesia on Wednesday during the meeting of the U.N. Security Council in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

    The Commission has for some weeks been consulting African opinion in Rhodesia on the proposed Rhodesian Independence Agreement.

    Britain was on the eve of using the veto in Addis Ababa to block an African resolution condemning the Rhodesian agreement proposals.

    African delegates want a new Constitutional Conference with 'genuine representatives' of the black majority taking part. Without drastic amendment of the resolution containing these proposals, a British veto was inevitable. This was how Sir Colin Crowe stated the British position.
