  • Description

    BRITAIN'S COLONIAL SECRETARY, MR ANTHONY GREENWOOD, IS CURRENTLY ON AN ELEVEN DAY FACT-FINDING VISIT TO THE ADEN PROTECTORATE.

    YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) HE CALLED ON THE SULTAN OF FADHELI, NASR BIN ABDULA AL FADHELI. THE FADHELI STATE IS SITUATED SOME 40 MILES (64
    KILOMETRES) FROM ADEN.

    MR GREENWOOD TRAVELLED BY HELICOPTER AND WAS MET ON ARRIVAL BY THE SULTAN AND A GUARD DRAWN FROM THE SULTAN'S ARMY.

    HIS ARRIVAL ON FRIDAY WAS MARRED BY A SERIES OF EXPLOSIONS WHICH INJURED SEVERAL PEOPLE. THE FOLLOWING DAY ANOTHER BOMB EXPLOSION KILLED TWO BRITISH SERVICEMEN. RESPONSIBILITY FOR A RECENT SERIES OF EXPLOSIONS IN ADEN HAS BEEN CLAIMED BY THE NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT FOR THE LIBERATION OF THE OCCUPIED SOUTH, WHICH HAS ISSUED A STATEMENT CONDEMNING ANYONE TAKING PART IN TALKS WITH THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT.

    ONE OF MR GREENWOOD'S AIMS IS TO MEET THE POLITICAL LEADERS OF ADEN FOR TALKS, WHICH WILL PROBABLY BE FOLLOWED BY TALKS IN LONDON LATER. ALL PARTIES ARE DEMANDING A GRANT OF INDEPENDENCE BEFORE 1968 -- THE DATE GIVEN BY THE CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT.
