Callaghan: "We made a report to the Chancellor.........the Foreign Secretary has been keeping in touch... perhaps he'd like to make a statement.."
"It does appear now that Mr. Smith ....has made...a very tragic decision ...the one thing I would say to him.... one last appeal.....to have second thoughts ...not to close the door irrevocably..."
SOF: "...could you please elaborate ...what the future may be for that region of Africa."
SOF Callaghan: "We haven't really seen the official announcement yet.....if Tony wants to add anything..?"
"No I absolutely agree with that one.... ---LAUGHTER...One can't possibly take a view as to future steps we may or may not take in Africa until Mr Richard has come home......have not yet decided whether to call him home immediately tomorrow.....or whether I should ask him still to stay for another week or so..."
Mr Schmidt says:"and the Prime Minister and myself"
