dated April 23, 1955: Dual nationality to end

The Chinese Prime Minister, Mr. Chou En-lai, and the Indonesian Foreign Affairs Minister, Dr. Sunario, signed in Bandung on April 22 a treaty which will end the dual nationality of two-and-a-half million Chinese living in Indonesia. The treaty calls on the Chinese population to increase their sense of responsibility to whichever nation they choose as their motherland. This is the first treaty with a non-Communist country that Mr. Chou En-lai has signed personally. Under the treaty, citizens of Chinese origin in Indonesia will have to decide within two years whether they want Chinese nationality or Indonesian nationality. It will become effective when ratification instruments are exchanged at Peking.
