August 24,1975 *^ Iff August 24,1 yo ^Miular GoefM-JMU BLAC:KS,"WHITES Mood Pessimistic as Talks Near On Possible Settlement in Rhodesia .Veu- York Timvt .4P SALISBURY. Rhodesia - Facing new constitutional talks with African nationalist leaders. Prime Minister Ian D. Smith said Saturday that his government had no policy "to hand our country ever to any black majority government and as i'ar as 1 am concerned we never will have." Smith's remarks only reinforced what was already a deeply pessimistic mood as lie prepared to meet Monday with officials of the African National Council to discuss a possible settlement of the breakaway British colony's long constitutional and racial dilemma. The talks will take place on a luxury train supplied by South Africa and parked on a Zambesi River bridge exactly on the Khodesia-Zasnbia border. The two sides are not even in agreement about the character and purpose of the iirsl meeting. Smith has insisted t h a i the Monday morning session may only last a few minutes and is only a formality to permit the iwo sides to express their genuine desire to talk rather than tight. Substantive negotiations must then take place in a committee or committees to meet within Rhode- Ian Smith Prepare for Talks... sia in coming months, he asserts. Bishop Abel Muzorewa. the nominal Bishop Abel Muzorewa . . .on Black-White Settlement leader of the African National Council, has said he wants the talks Monday to consider Sihanouk Plans to Speak at U.N. TOKYO (API-Prince Norodom Sihan- ouk. C a m b o d i a ' s titular head of state., plans to speak at the United Nations General Assembly session this fall, a Japanese report from Peking said Sunday. Kyodo news service quoted Pung Peng Cheng, "chief secretary of the office of Cambodia's head of slate." who arrived in Peking w i t h Sihanouk on Saturday, as making the announcement. He said Sihanouk plans to attend the U.N. session "sometime before this December" but did not elaborate. Kyodo reported. The announcement also said Sihanouk plans to stay in New York for only "a few hours" and will leave the United Stales immediately after his U.N. appearance, rejecting receptions and interviews, Kyo- do said. Sihanouk arrived in Peking from Pyongyang after concluding a three-month visit to North Korea. He was accompanied by Prime Minister Penn Nouth and First Deputy Premier Khieu Samphan. Repbrls from Pyongyang said Sihanouk would leave China for Cambodia at an unspecified time. serious business. He is bringing a full 12-man negotiating team and two white constitutional lawyers, in contrast to a skeleton team being brought by Smith. In public utterances, the two sides appear to be even further apart on basic issues. The African National Council is asking for "immediate" majority, or black, rule by which it means transition from white domination within a period of as short as 12 months. Smith has called for the maintenance of w h a t he calls "standards" and of "civilized" government and will probably propose an extremely gradual and qualified enfranchisement of blacks that might delay majority rule almost indefinitely. There has been no tangible sign of compromise on either side in the last nine months. There were other reasons for gloom before the talks: * There is serious disunity and division among the black nationalist leaders themselves, who may find it difficult to reach a common bargaining position and who are competing for leadership of black Rhodesia. Supporters of Joshua Nkomo, one nationalist figure, are calling for new leadership elections, which Nkomo would probably win. Muzorewa, now supported by militants anxious to stop Nkomo, this week called such a demand "treachery" to the black people. »-There exists a strong white backlash within Smith's own cabinet and political parly, the Rhodesian Front, and among many of the country's 270,000 whites who hope to avoid any dilution of their privileges and power. Political observers are sharply divided over whether the talks can produce an acceptable agreement for blacks and for Rhodesia's hardline whites. CLEAR-OUT! DISCONTINUED MACHINES Huge discounts!
