dated July 1, 1955: India is not neutral

"We cannot establish peace by methods of war; we must think in terms of peace," said Mr. V.K. Krishna Menon, India's roving diplomat, at Whittier (California) on June 28. Speaking at the Institute of International Relations at Whittier College, he added that India was often called neutral. "But India is not neutral to peace, India is not neutral to using methods of negotiation. We should be willing and wise to take the risks for peace as we take the risks of war. The cause of peace through conciliation calls for courage, perseverance, patience and magnanimity." Referring to the United Nations anniversary meeting at San Francisco, he said it represented a change in the attitudes of world leaders. He termed the session "a good sendoff" for the four-power conference to be held in Geneva.
