dated December 10,1953: Pak. Citizens Oppose

Military Alliance Nine representatives of prominent citizens' groups of Pakistan issued an appeal to the Government in Karachi asking it to "pursue a policy of strict neutrality in dealing with the world's two major Power blocs." The statement said, "We want the Government to declare unequivocally that it will not be a party to any military alignment. Military agreement with any foreign Power will invite conflict and war on our soil, besides foreign domination." The signatories to the citizens' statement included the President of the Jinnah Awami League. In another statement, the Azad Pakistan Party expressed "serious concern at the growing involvement of Pakistan in military commitment with America. The visit of U.S. Vice-President Richard Nixon is a part of this move."
