From the Archives (Jan. 11, 1969): India’s proposal on dispute settlement

A joint machinery to resolve Indo-Pakistan problems had been suggested by India to Pakistan. A proposal to this effect was conveyed to the Pakistan High Commissioner, Mr. Sajjad Hyder, by Mr. Kewal Singh, Secretary, External Affairs Ministry, here [New Delhi] to-day [Jan. 10]. Mr. Hyder was given the text of the statement made by the Prime Minister and her Press Conference on January 1. In particular Mr. Hyder’s attention was drawn to the Prime Minister’s offer to set up a joint machinery for the resolution of Indo-Pakistan differences along with the conclusion of a no-war pact. The Prime Minister’s proposal is a follow-up of her earlier offer of a no-war pact.
