NotesImage 1: See 18835 for published cartoon. News: 19 October: British officials confirmed that there was some sharp speaking at the dinner party for Kaunda. They admitted that Heath spoke to the effect that he was not willing to be lectured. Kaunda said he had been surprised by the vehemance of Heath's reaction and he had experienced nothing like it in all his dealings with other heads of friendly governments. News: 21 October: President Pompidou assured President Kaunda of Zambia that he had forbidden the export to South Africa of French arms and equipment which could be used for anti-guerrilla warfare. This would apply to light and medium helicopters and light armoured vehicles which France had been selling to South Africa. Since the British Government imposed an embargo on arms to South Africa in 1964, France has become on of the most important suppliers and has delivered submarines, Mirage aircraft and helicopters, tanks and armoured cars, as well as electronic and other equipment.
