October 14, 1985

Howe also said that some recent South African reforms "cannot be dismissed as irrelevant." In Johannesburg, meanwhile, four white opposition politicians who met with African National Congress rebels said the two delegations agreed on dismantling apartheid but not on how to accomplish it.
