  • Description

    Britain's special envoy to Zimbabwe Rhodesia, Lord Harlech, arrived in the capital, Salisbury, on Tuesday (3 July) for urgent talks with Prime Minister Abel Muzorewa. In London, the right-wing newspaper the Daily Express said Thursday (5 July) that Lord Harlech had taken a blunt message to Salisbury -- there must be significant changes in the Constitution before Britain lifts trade sanctions. Bishop Muzorewa will be coming to Britain later this month for talks with Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher.

    SYNOPSIS: It was Lord Harlech's first visit to Salisbury since he was a member of a commission on the settlement plan for Rhodesia in 1972. He described his mission as an 'exercise in quiet diplomacy' to effect recognition for the former British colony.

    Lord Harlech visited six 'Front Line' states last month -- Tanzania, Zambia, Mozambique, Angola and Botswanayas well as Nigeria.
