  • Description

    Nepalese Premier Koirala flew into New Delhi Aug 9 for consultations with the Indian Government on Sino-Nepalese border issues. Mr. Koirala was garlanded with flowers as he descended from the plane and was greeted by Prime Minister Pandit Nehru.

    There is soon to be a first meeting of the Sino-Nepalese boundary commission in Katmandu to delimit and demarcate the Sino-Nepalese boundary. This commission was set up under a boundary agreement signed in Peking last March. Mr. Koirala will discuss the situation with Mr. Nehru before flying on to Israel for talks with Premier Ben Gurion.

    Chinese troops, in a raid on Nepalese territory in the Mustang area June 28, killed a Nepalese Army officer and took 17 prisoners - one sergeant and 16 civilians. Two village officials and 17 horses were also taken away. Following an immediate protest to the Peking Government, Nepalese Premier Koirala accepted a letter of apology July 4 from Chinese Prime Minister Chou En-lai.
