  • Description

    GEN. MAXWELL TAYLOR, CHAIRMAN OF THE U.S. JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF, WAS WELCOMED TO NEW DELHI YESTERDAY (MONDAY) BY THE INDIAN ARMY CHIEF OF STAFF, GEN. J.N. CHAUDHURI. HE ARRIVED THERE ON A THREE-DAY OFFICIAL VISIT.

    FILM SHOWS THE GENERAL ARRIVING BY PLANE; IN COMPANY WITH HIS WIFE BEING GREETED BY CHAUDHURI; AND LATER MEETING INDIA'S DEFENSE MINISTER, MR. CHAVAN.

    GEN. TAYLOR WAS ACCOMPANIED BY SOME OF HIS TOP MILITARY AIDES. HIS ITINERARY INCLUDES A SERIES OF TOP MILITARY TALKS WITH INDIA'S POLITICAL AND MILITARY LEADERS AND A VISIT TO THE EASTERN SECTOR OF THE INDIAN FRONTIER ON WEDNESDAY.

    THE TALKS, ACCORDING TO BOTH U.S. AND INDIAN SOURCES, WILL COVER THE ENTIRE RANGE OF INDIA'S DEFENSE PROBLEMS. HOWEVER, GEN. TAYLOR HIMSELF WAS NON-COMMITTAL: "I HAVE NO NEWS...I AM A TRAVELLING SOLDIER."
    OBSERVERS SAY THAT A SUBJECT WHICH ALMOST CERTAINLY WILL BE RAISED IS THE REPORTED AMERICAN PROPOSAL TO EXTEND THE AREA OF OPERATIONS OF THE U.S. SEVENTH FLEET TO THE INDIAN OCEAN.

    GEN. TAYLOR REACHED NEW DELHI IN A VC-137 AIR FORCE PLANE, A SPECIAL VERSION OF THE BOEING-707, FROM PARIS WHERE HE ATTENDED THE RECENT NATO MILITARY COUNCIL MEETING.
