Lisbon Appointment (nom) by Cliftonian. The Lisbon Appointment was the 1965 decision by the self-governing colony of Rhodesia to open its own diplomatic mission in Lisbon, Portugal, without official agreement from the British government. The appointment came at a time of increased tensions between Rhodesia and the UK regarding sovereignty, which the British would not grant so long as the White-minority government remained in power; as such, the British considered a unilateral appointment of a mission illegal. Two months after the appointment was accepted by Portugal, despite dissuasion attempts by Britain, Rhodesia unilaterally declared its independence.
