Uranium from Namibia
- "... nevertheless, in keeping with the spirit of these (UN) resolutions, we have decided to give no further promotional support for trade with Namibia..."
- James Callaghan, Foreign Secretary, House of Commons, December 1974
The Rossing File awaits the answer to this question:
- Why was it that Mr Callaghan as Foreign Secretary, following talks with representatives of SWAPO in Lusaka during January 1975, gave a false impression to members of the Labour Cabinet that Namibia's "sole authentic representative" had no objection to the Rössing Uranium Mine contracts being continued?
Records of that discussion confirm that the SWAPO representatives present gave no such indication.
