    Background: The Soviet Communist Party leader, Mr. Leonid Brezhnev, blamed Pakistan for the Indo-Pakistan war during a major policy speech at the Sixth Polish Communist Party Congress on Tuesday (December 7). It was Pakistan's "repressive measures" in East Pakistan which led to the conflict, he told Congress delegates in Warsaw.

    This film, which shows Mr. Brezhnev speaking, includes shots of other Communist leaders addressing the Congress.

    SYNOPSIS: Warsaw, Tuesday--and the Sixth Polish Communist Party Congress, attended by nearly two thousand international communists. Soviet Party leader Leonid Brezhnev was one of them--and in a major policy speech he blamed Pakistan for causing its current war with India by using "repressive measures" in East Pakistan. He called for a peaceful political settlement there, and on other topics he endorsed the economic reform policies of Polish Party Leader Mr. Edward Gierek. Other speakers included East German Party leader Erich Honecker, who called for implementation of the Four-Power agreement on Berlin, and North Vietnamese delegate Nguyen Duy Trinh.

    Another speaker was Czechoslovak Party leader Gustav Husak, followed by Hungarian Party leader Janos Kadar.

    Rumanian President Nicolae Ceausescu....
    ....and Polish Prime Minister Piotr Jaroszewicz, who gave a report on Poland's four year plan. This aims for a fifty per cent rise in industrial productivity and agricultural output. Later, the Congress was due to split up into 19 working groups on various programmes.
