The Anglo-American envoys trying to settle the Rhodesia majority-rule question, Dr. david Owen and Mr. Andrew Young, are back in Britain after their African tour trying to persuade all sides to accept their latest peace proposals. At the Foreign Office in London on Friday (2 September), less than 24 hours after meeting Rhodesian Prime Minister Mr. Ian Smith in Salisbury, they spoke newsmen. They both appeared adamant to follow through with this latest attempt to end the 12-year-old Rhodesian rebellion, although Wednesday's general election there put Mr. Smith and the Rhodesian Front firmly back in power.
SYNOPSIS: The next step, Dr. Owen said, was to contact the United Nations.
Mr. Young said it was the only chance of avoiding a threat to the whole area.
But what about the election, Dr. Owen was asked.
