  • Description

    Speaking in New York on Saturday (6 November), Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi described the influx of Bengali refugees as a threat to her country's independence.

    In an address to Columbia University's School of International Affairs, she said handling the millions of refugees was more a political problem than a financial one.

    Mrs. Gandhi had just completed two days of talks with President Nixon in Washington. On Sunday she flew on to Paris for the next state of a world tour which has already taken her to London, Vienna and Brussels and which will also include Bonn.
