  • Description

    In Zambia, the exiled Rhodesian Patriotic Front co-leader, Mr Joshua Nkomo, has told British envoy Mr Cledwyn Hughes that an all-party conference on Rhodesia's future would be a 'non-starter'. Mr Nkomo told a news conference after their talks in Lusaka on Saturday (2 December) that the only worthwhile talks would be between generals on the battlefield. The same day, Mr Hughes spoke with Zambian President Kenneth Kaunda, but no details of their talks were immediately available. Mr Hughes was scheduled to leave on Sunday (3 December) for Pretoria in South Africa. The British Prime Minister Mr James Callaghan has sent Mr Hughes to sound out southern African leaders on the possible value of peace talks on Rhodesia. After speaking with Mr Nkomo, Mr Hughes gave his views on the usefulness of talks.
