dated October 01, 1954: Foreign policy endorsed

The Lok Sabha on September 30 endorsed the Government's foreign policy. For the first time a reference was made in an official resolution to the ideas of peaceful co-existence and of respect for each other's territorial integrity - principles contained in the Nehru-Chou En-lai joint declaration. Dr. Satyanarain Sinha (Congress) said India's friendly relations with China had in turn created better relations between India and the Soviet Union. He asked Mr. Nehru to invite the Dalai Lama of Tibet to visit the Buddhist shrines in India. This visit, he said, would remove a lot of misunderstanding between India and China with regard to Tibet. Acharya Kripalani, Praja Socialist leader, said that in spite of what his colleague, Mr. Asoka Mehta, and Prof. Hiren Mukerjee had said and whatever might have been this Government's failures at home, it would be "ungracious, even for me as an Opposition member, to deny that in international affairs its accomplishments have been great." When Congress benches cheered this statement, he added, "The accomplishments have not only been great, but glorious." Winding up the debate, Mr. Nehru deprecated the cry of "Asia for Asians" because the world was too closely knit to think in terms of national unity or even continental unity.
