    Background: SOON AFTER HIS ARRIVAL IN TURKEY YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) EMPEROR HAILE SELASSIE OF ETHIOPIA SAID THAT FORCE MIGHT BE THE ONLY WAY TO SOLVE THE RHODESIAN PROBLEM. THE EMPEROR, WHO IS ON A FIVE-DAY VISIT WAS SPEAKING AT A STATE DINNER.

    THE EMPEROR, REPLYING TO A SPEECH BY TURKISH PRESIDENT CEVDET SUNAY SAID:" I STRONGLY BELIEVE THE METHODS AND ACTIONS TAKEN IN THE PAST TO SOLVE THE RHODESIAN PROBLEM WERE, AND ARE TODAY, COMPLETELY INADEQUATE. I BELIEVE THE ONLY WAY TO RESTORE THE RIGHTS OF THE AFRICAN PEOPLE IN RHODESIA, AS IT APPEARS NOW, MAY BE THE USE OF FORCE."
    HE ALSO SAID HE THOUGHT THE PRESENT SITUATION IN SOUTHEAST ASIA WAS A THREAT TO WORLD PEACE. "THE DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY AND INNOCENT BLOOD THAT IS NOW BEING SHED IN VIETNAM HAS BEEN THE CAUSE OF EXTREME GRIEF TO ME," HE SAID. HE SAID THAT ALTHOUGH NO HEED HAD BEEN TAKEN OF HIS PERSONAL EFFORTS, HE WOULD CONTINUE WITH ALL HIS STRENGTH TO SEARCH FOR WAYS AND MEANS BY WHICH THE VIETNAM WAR MIGHT BE TERMINATED.

    THE EMPEROR'S VISIT TO TURKEY IS THE LAST STAGE OF A TOUR WHICH HAS ALREADY TAKEN HIM TO THE UNITED STATES, SUDAN AND THE SOVIET UNION. HE WAS WELCOMED AT THE ESENBOGA AIRPORT BY MR. SUNAY, PRIME MINISTER SULEIMAN DEMIREL AND MEMBERS OF THE DIPLOMATIC CORPS.
