  • Description

    British Prime Minister Harold Wilson, and his Foreign Secretary, James Callaghan, tried to persuade Tanzanian President Julius Nyerere during talks in London on Thursday (20 November), to try to seek a peaceful negotiated settlement of the Rhodesian dispute.

    Unless a settlement can be reached, the alternative, in the British view, is a full-scale guerrilla war which could cause untold damage, not only inside Rhodesia, but also to neighbouring countries.

    But in speeches the previous day at Oxford University and to City of London business leaders at Guildhall, President Nyerere Said an intensification of the arms struggle appeared inevitable in both Rhodesia and Angola.

    President Nyerere is in Britain on a four-day state visit -- his first since his country's independence in 1961.

    The President was also expected to discuss with the British Ministers the conflict in Angola, South Africa and its policy of detente, and major international economic, trading, energy and raw materials problems.
