  • Description

    At the United Nations last night (12 December), a United States resolution to the Security Council called on India to accept a ceasefire and withdraw its armed forces. U.S. Ambassador George bush charged that India was acting in defiance of world opinion by continuing to exercise military force. And, with the help of Soviet vetoes, India had prevented the Security Council from adopting a resolution to curb hostilities.

    In reply, Indian Foreign Minister Sardar Swaran Singh described the United Nations suggested solution to the East Pakistan crisis as unrealistic. Before the emergency session began, a cable from Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi said her country was prepared to consider a ceasefire only if Pakistani forces were withdrawn from East Pakistan--which she called Bangladesh.
