  • Description

    Representatives of Rhodesia's African National Council (ANC) led by Dr. Elliot Gabellah, the ANC Vice-President, have been visiting London for talks with the British government on the political situation in Rhodesia.

    On Monday (1 July) the delegation called on Mr. James Callaghan the Foreign Secretary. After the meeting, Mr. Callaghan said the Rhodesian white minority government should now finally accept there was no real alternative to meaningful discussions with the Africans. The ANC rejected a proposal by the Rhodesian leader, Mr. Ian Smith, for a round-table constitutional conference. The African leaders say they will hold no more talks with the Rhodesian government except in the form of a constitutional conference in which all parties including detained African leaders, would be represented.

    The ANC's talks with the Rhodesian government were broken off last month following the arrest of Dr. Edson Sithole, one of the leaders of the ANC.
