dated October 5, 1954: Indo-Pak differences

Pakistan's decision to take the Kashmir dispute back to the U.N. Security Council has been communicated to Prime Minister Nehru by Mr. Mohammed Ali, Prime Minister of Pakistan, in his last letter in the series exchanged between them over a period of a year. The correspondence, released on October 4 at the instance of Mr. Mohammed Ali, confirms earlier reports of the stands taken by the two Governments on the dispute. While admitting that Pakistan as an independent country has the unquestioned right to decide on the acceptance of military aid from the U.S., Mr. Nehru has reiterated that certain consequences that flow from the acceptance of such aid cannot be ignored. One such consequence is the addition to a possible threat to Kashmir. One of the main points of difference between India and Pakistan is the quantum of forces to be retained on either side of the ceasefire line. Mr. Nehru maintains that accession of military strength to Pakistan from an external source has complicated this issue and renders it necessary for India to have sufficient forces to defend Kashmir. The fact of Pakistan's aggression in Kashmir has been fully established and India cannot take the risk of allowing any repetition. The Pakistan Prime Minister holds that there is no connection between American military aid and the quantum of forces to be retained in Kashmir.
