  • Description

    MR.HARRY REEDMAN, THE NEW RHODESIAN REPRESENTATIVE TO PORTUGAL, ARRIVED IN LISBON TODAY, AND WAS WELCOMED BY OFFICIALS OF THE PORTUGUESE FOREIGN AFFAIRS MINISTRY.

    MR.REEDMAN'S APPOINTMENT HAS CAUSED AN UPSET IN BRITAIN, WHICH HAS CHALLENGED THE RIGHT OF RHODESIA, STILL A DEPENDENT COLONY, TO APPOINT SEPARATE DIPLOMATIC REPRESENTATIVES.

    MR.REEDMAN SO FAR HAS REFUSED TO DISCLOSE WHAT HIS ROLE IN LISBON WILL BE.OFFICIALLY HE IS DESCRIBED AS RHODESIA'S 'ACCREDITED DIPLOMATIC REPRESENTATIVE TO LISBON' BUT HIS STATUS IS STILL UNCERTAIN.

    HOWEVER, BRITAIN HAS SAID MR.REEDMAN COULD ONLY HAVE DIPLOMATIC STATUS IF HE WAS A MEMBER OF THE BRITISH EMBASSY STAFF.

    ON HIS ARRIVAL IN LISBON MR.REEDMAN SAID HE WAS PLEASED TO BE AMONG PEOPLE FRIENDLY TO RHODESIA AND WITH WHOM RHODESIANS HAD EVERYTHING IN COMMON, INCLUDING THE 'WILL OF SURVIVAL'.

    IT IS NOT YET KNOWN IF MR.REEDMAN WILL PRESENT ANY CREDENTIALS TO THE PORTUGUESE PRESIDENT, OR WHAT FORM HIS CREDENTIALS WILL TAKE.A SPOKESMAN FOR THE RHODESIAN GOVERNMENT HAS SAID MR.REEDMAN WILL PRESENT CREDENTIALS WHILE A SPOKESMAN FOR THE PORTUGUESE FOREIGN MINISTRY SAID HE OBVIOUSLY WILL NOT BECAUSE HE IS NEITHER AN AMBASSADOR NOR A MINISTER.

    SO FAR NO DATE HAS BEEN FIXED FOR A MEETING OF MR.REEDMAN AND THE PORTUGUESE FOREIGN MINISTER, DOCTOR ALBERTO NOGUEIRA.
