council Will seek restoration of US aid An AP News Analysis By JOHN M HIGHTOWER AP Special Correspondent WASHINGTON a creasefire agreement finally achieved in their war pver Kashmir both India and Pakis tan are expected to press the United States to restore sus pended aid programs The loss of military aid by both countries coupled with a freeze on projected aid commitments was evidently a major source of pressure on both India and Pakistan thefighting US officials felt that over all the ceasefire came because both countries hadcome to recognize they faced a poten tially long and devastating

by creating a diver siohon Indias China border r If the Chinese had encount ered weakness in Indias re sistance or in the readiness of the Western powers perhaps even Russia to support India they might have pressed on into an active border campaign against India Among Western diplomats therefore the belief is that stern warnings from the United States and Britain and Russias continued supply of military assistance to India helped keep the Chinese threat limited The heart of the US strategy was to establish and stick with a completely neutral position as between India and Pakistan Another major element was to concentrate all US diplomatic activity or at least all that was conducted publicly in the UN Security Council almost precisely at 3 am the deadline set by the 11nalion body 48
