  • Description

    THE SECOND ROUND OF TALKS ON THE KASHMIR PROBLEM BEGAN IN DELHI YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) BETWEEN REPRESENTATIVES
    OF INDIA AND PAKISTAN WITH REPORTED DISCUSSION OF A SOLUTION BY PARTITION RATHER THAN BY PLEBISCITE.

    MR BHUTTO, LEADER OF THE PAKISTANI DELEGATION, SAID THAT NIGHT THAT HE WAS "NOT PESSIMISTIC". ASKED WHETHER THE TALKS HAD RAISED THE QUESTION OF PARTITION, HE SAID: "I CAN TELL YOU WE ARE NOW DISCUSSING THE INDIAN PROPOSALS".

    IN THE MORNING, BEFORE THE MEETING BEGAN, MR BHUTTO HAD TALKED FOR 45 MINUTES WITH INDIAN PRIME MINISTER NEHRU.

    INDIA IS SAID TO FAVOUR "ADJUSTMENT" OF THE 13-YEAR-OLD CEASE-FIRE LINE THAT CONSTITUTES THE PRESENT BORDER BETWEEN INDIA AND PAKISTAN IN KASHMIR TO CREATE A SETTLEMENT.

    ADJUSTMENTS WOULD PRESUMABLY BE IN FAVOUR OF PAKISTAN BUT THE ISSUE BETWEEN THE TWO NATIONS IS WHAT TO DO WITH THE FAMOUS VALE OF KASHMIR, AN AREA OF ABOUT ONE-THOUSAND SQUARE MILES OF WHICH THE ESSENTIAL TWO-THIRDS ARE NOW ON THE INDIAN SIDE OF THE LINE.
