  • Description

    At the United Nations on Wednesday (22 December), Indian Foreign Minister Sardar Swaran Singh outlined the conditions for Indian troop withdrawals from East Pakistan. The sooner the world recognised the self-styled Bangladesh government, the sooner Indian forces would leave, he added.

    Mr. Sigh also praised the Security Council for refusing to press for immediate troop withdrawal in a resolution approved on Tuesday night. This, he said, recognised the reality of the situation. The civilian Bangladesh government needed time to establish itself and create conditions in which the refugees could return. Also, he said, without Indian presence, West Pakistan troops faced the danger of reprisals.
