She blamed the I'.S. for what she described as the most pro- longed and pointless conflict of modern times in Vietnam and [or the breakup of Pakistan by giving "a false sense of security to unrepresentative g o v e r n- ments." Mrs. Gandhi, iiuuiguratinp five-day Asian trade union semi- nar, described the Vietnam war as a "classical example of the old colonialism yielding place to new intervention." She paid high tribute to "the heroic resistance of the Viet- namese people." "A small nation tias been able to withstand the world's mighti- est power. Could there be a more glorious example of I lie i m m o r t a I i t y of the hu man spirit? "I have no doubt that the peo- ple of Vietnam will triumph in the not so distant future." Referring to the emergence of Bangladesh, Mrs. Gandhi asked: "Caii anyone doubt that the split-up of Pakistan was caused by the policy of hegemony which attempts to prop up na- tions in order to serve big power interests? "This policy gives a false sense of security to unrepresen- tative governments, lulling them into the complacent belief that nations' strengths can be built on outside military equip- ment, bypassing their own peo- pie."
