KISSINGER: "As you know there's a meeting in Dar this weekend of the five presidents and various liberation movements. My present plan is to return to the United states after my talks with the South African Prime Minister and my return to London to exchange views and thoughts with British officials and ministers. We will then send Secretary Schaufele to Africa and pending upon his report I would be prepared to go to Africa next week.
REPORTER: Dr. Kissinger what would you
KISSINGER: I don't want to prejudge what the African presidents are going to decide or what will come out of my meeting with Prime Minister Vorster. I believe that the conditions for progress in Southern Africa exist. They require very serious, very difficult negotiations, and many obstacles that have to be overcome, but matters having been brought to this point, it would be a pity if they were imperilled."
