    "I....I'm not sure how far we're going to go...tremendous diversion...between participating parties...if we don't get on ....it seems to me as though.....they are almost dedicated to ensuring failure before we commence...."



    Q'TION FROM REPORTER(unseen):



    "....still have an attitude of confidence..? "...by nature I'm optimistic...certainly never accept defeat unless it is foisted on me by destructive attitude of others.



    "...joint press statement by the patriotic front ZANU & the ANC Zimbabwe..: this afternoon....held a meeting with Mr. Ivor Richard.....communicated the British government's response to the patriotic front's demands made at Monday's meeting.......



    A.. with regard to the British role and status.....Mr. Richard said he was vested with full powers........the patriotic front reiterated its demand that Her Majesty's government appoint a representative of Ministerial rank with full powers to grant Zimbabwe its independence.. B.. the patriotic front's demand that all political prisoners.....be released... that Ian Smith decease from the genocide he is committing..........he said these had been communicated to the proper authorities......



    Unless these demands are met the success of the conference stands in jeopardy..... it is now clear that the British government in collaboration with Ian Smith are determined to wreck the conference..."
