Opposed WASHINGTON Nov 14 WlUnitctl States officials would be willing to compromise with the Chinese Communists on including India in a Korean peace conference ac cording to authoritative infor mants here but South Korean President Syngman Rhec remains bitterly opposed to the idea This is one of two issues which may eventually wreck efforts to achieve agreement on holding the conference The other is Russias role in the projected conference The United Nations has decided that Russia might attend on the belligerent is at the invitation of the Chinese and North Korean Communists But the Reds have insisted on a neutral place for Russia and American officials say they just cannot see any U S yielding to that demand Secretary of State Dulles spe cial representative Arthur Dean reached his first bit of agreement with the Communists at Panmun jom today when it was decided that questions of time and place of the conference and the partici pants should be determined simultaneously This represented a compromise by both sides since Dean had in sisted time and place must be de cided first and the Reds had de manded priority for the member ship issue Dean himself said the agreement merely opens the door to the hard work of negotiation and State De partment authorities privately sec onded this idea There is some feeling here that eventually the most important ne gotiating that Dean will have to undertake may be with Syngman Rhee rather than with the Reds but this ignores the issue of Rus sias place which many experts be lieve may prove beyond com promise Dean is reported to have dis cussed with Rhee the possibility of letting India attend a Korean conference in the role of an obser ver or some similar capacity but he found the South Korean President still strongly opposed to India having any part in Korean affairs whatever What authorities here fear Is that even if it may be possible to work out some kind of deal on the matter of India the Reels may be pushing the Indian issue not be cause they really want Indias participation but because they want to work Russia into the ng in a neutral position They proposed that during United Na tions debate on a conference Reasoning along this line sug gests that a compromise on India would not break down the real obstacle to a conference at all AGRXDA AfJRKKD tPOX PANMUNJOM Sunday Nov 15 and Red diplomats
