Yes, we had a very full discussion with President Nyerere about the situation in Rhodesia, and we exchanged views on our impressions. I think that there is a great deal of concern among the four Presidents about the split between the different ranks of the ANC, and I think that they would wish to use their influence to bring them together. I think that President Nyerere sees very clearly the dangers of an armed struggle, but certainly at the moment he is not optimistic about the prospects of a peaceful settlement through negotiation.
