  • Description

    THE CEASE-FIRE ON INDIA'S NORTHERN FRONTIER HAS MOVED THE INDIAN-CHINESE HOSTILITIES INTO A SHADOWY DIPLOMATIC AREA STILL SHORT OF A FULL BREAK IN RELATIONS BETWEEN THE TWO NATIONS.

    AN EXCHANGE OF NOTES VERGING ON DIPLOMATIC DOUBLE TALK STARTED ON DEC 3 62. AT THAT TIME, THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT SENT A NOTE TO THE CHINESE ADVISING THAT INDIAN CONSULATE IN THE CHINESE CITIES OF SHANGHAI AND LHASA WERE BEING CLOSE. THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT ALSO REQUESTED THAT CHINA CLOSE ITS CONSULATES IN BOMBAY AND CALCUTTA BYU THE 15TH OF DECEMBER.

    IN WHAT MAY BE CONSTRUCTED AS AN ASIATIC FACE-SAVING DEVICE, CHINESE ANNOUNCED THAT THE CONSULATES IN BOMBAY AND CALCUTTA WOULD BE CLOSED - NOT BECAUSE OF WHAT CHINESE REFERRED TO AS INDIA'S "UNREASONABLE DEMAND", BUT BECAUSE OF WHAT THE CHINESE CALLED "INDIAN OBSTRUCTION".
