Summary

A file of correspondence concerning Hungarian relations with South Africa. The correspondence concerns a meeting between A.D. Wilson of the Foreign Office and the Hungarian ambassador to the United Kingdom, Jenő Incze, in which the latter expressed his views on the withdrawal of Hungarian tennis players from Wimbledon as a protest against South Africa's policy of apartheid. The ambassador also gave his support to the views of the British government, which argues that, although sanctions against South Africa could be effective, they would be detrimental to the country's "coloured population".
