Ethiopia Kidnap

Asked for clarification on the Ambassador’s call for a "restraint" in the media, the PMOS replied that the UK Ambassador in Addis Ababa had said that this was time for media restraint, and we would support that. Any speculation could only be harmful to those we all wanted to help. The Foreign & Commonwealth Office were in the lead on this, and we would say nothing more than they were saying.

Asked if the Prime Minister was being briefed on the issue, the PMOS replied that the Prime Minister was being kept fully informed, and had been from the beginning. People should not read anything into that, this was a situation where it was best that the FCO stay in the lead and we would be saying nothing.
