  • Description

    British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, has sent a message to Zambia's President Kenneth expressing concern at the Zimbabwe Rhodesian raids into his country. Zambia was on a war alert on Tuesday (20 November) -- a move for which President Kaunda has blamed Britain. He says Britain must compensate Zambia for the damage as she is ultimately responsible. The Zimbabwe Rhodesia ceasefire talks in London, meanwhile, struck a sour note with both Patriotic Front leaders accusing Britain of `chicanery and treachery'. Mr. Joshua Nkomo and Mr. Robert Mugabe claimed that the absence of a submission on paper by the Salisbury delegation proved collaboration by the British. This was strongly denied by Sir Ian Gilmour, who is chairing the talks in the absence of Lord Carrington. Mr. Mugabe, speaking later to a reporter from Zimbabwe Rhodesia Television, said that the Patriotic Front refused to be rushed into a hasty ceasefire deal at the talks.
