    BRITAIN'S COMMONWEALTH RELATIONS SECRETARY, MR DUNCAN SANDYS, ARRIVED BACK IN LONDON THIS MORNING (MONDAY) AFTER A SERIES OF DISCUSSIONS BETWEEN PAKISTAN AND INDIA IN AN ATTEMPT TO HELP SOLVE THE DISPUTE OVER KASHMIR.

    BOTH INDIA AND PAKISTAN HAVE TERRITORIAL CLAIMS OVER KASHMIR AND THE DISPUTE BETWEEN THEM HAS CAUSED BITTERNESS EVER SINCE THE TWO NATIONS WERE CREATE IN 1947.

    MR SANDYS ORIGINALLY WENT TO DELHI TO DISCUSS INDIA'S NEEDS FOR BRITISH AID FOLLOWING THE CLASHES BETWEEN INDIAN AND CHINESE FORCES.

    LATER, MR SANDYS STAYED TO URGE BOTH INDIA AND PAKISTAN TO NEGOTIATE THEIR DISPUTE OVER KASHMIR. HE HAD PERSONAL EXCHANGES WITH THE INDIAN PRIME MINISTER, MR NEHRU, AND THE PRESIDENT OF PAKISTAN, FIELD MARSHAL AYUB KHAN, DURING WHICH THEY AGREED TO HOLD TALKS.

    JUST BEFORE HE WAS DUE TO RETURN TO LONDON, MR SANDYS WENT BACK TO DELHI FOR A FURTHER TALK WITH MR. NEHRU. MR. SANDYS WAS ASKED ABOUT HIS NEGOTIATIONS WHEN HE RETURNED TO LONDON AIRPORT:
