  • Description

    The three month old Zimbabwe-Rhodesian peace talks being conducted in London have reached agreement with only a few ceasefire details left to be ironed out. The talks had been in a state of dangerous deadlock for nearly a week with Patriotic Front guerrilla leaders Joshua Nkomo and Robert Mugabe demanding significant changes in Britain's ceasefire plan. The hurdle was cleared at further talks with Lord Carrington, the British Foreign Secretary. After the agreement Patriotic Front spokesman Mr Eddison Zvobgo spoke to the press.

    SYNOPSIS: The Salisbury delegation representing the government of Bishop Abel Muzorewa welcomed the agreement. Their spokesman, Mr David Zamuchiga, said he had always hoped agreement would be possible.
