    A TWELVE-MAN PAKISTANI DELEGATION FLEW INTO NEW DELHI YESTERDAY (MONDAY) FOR TOP LEVEL TALKS AIMED AT ENDING THE COMMUNAL HINDU-MOSLEM TENSION IN THE INDO-PAKISTAN SUBCONTINENT.

    THE PAKISTAN HOME MINISTER MR. KHAN, WHO LED HIS DELEGATION WAS WELCOMED AT THE AIRPORT BY HIS INDIAN COUNTERPART, MR. NANDA.

    THE TALKS BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES ARE SCHEDULED TO LAST THREE DAYS AND WILL BE ATTENDED BY MINISTERS AND OFFICIALS FROM EAST PAKISTAN AND THE INDIAN STATES IN WHICH THE DISTURBANCES HAVE BEEN CONCENTRATED.

    NO FORMAL AGENDA HAS BEEN WORKED OUT FOR THE TALKS, AGREED UPON BY MR. NEHRU AND PRESIDENT AYUB KHAN FOLLOWING THE DEATHS OF HUNDREDS OF HINDUS AND MOSLEMS IN THE PAST THREE MONTHS, AND SUBSEQUENT OF REFUGEES MOVING FORM ONE COUNTRY TO THE OTHER.

    INDICATIONS ARE, HOWEVER, THAT THE FOLLOWING PROBLEMS WILL BE DISCUSSED: HALTING THE FLOW OF REFUGEES AND CREATING CONDITIONS WHERE MINORITIES FEEL SAFE; QUESTIONS OF REFUGEES' ASSETS AND THEIR TRANSFER OF COMPENSATION; EVICTION OF MOSLEMS FORM INDIA AS ILLEGAL PAKISTAN INFILTRATORS; AND THE RECOVERY OF AS DEDUCTED WOMEN.

    THE MINISTERS ARE ALSO EXPECTED TO DISCUSS REVIVAL OF THE AGREEMENT OF "FUNDAMENTAL" RIGHTS OF MINORITIES TO EQUALITY OF CITIZENSHIP AND OPPORTUNITY, SIGNED BY INDIA AND PAKISTAN IN 1950 AFTER VIOLENT COMMUNAL DISTURBANCES.
