Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Wednesday, September 29, 197] Gandhi walks political tightrope on world tour By GERALD IIATZIV NEW DELHI (Hcutcr) Prime Minister Indira Gandhi is embarking on a scries o[ visils pointing up India's strengthened links with the Soviet Union, but also designed to assure (he world she has not abandoned the country's traditionally non- aligned stance. The situation in East Paki- stan, from where more than eight million refugees have crossed into India since March, is certain to dominate discus- sion. But there may well be talks also about relations with China. Her first trip, which began Monday, js to Moscow. Tt fol- lows soon after India and the Soviet Union signed a treaty ot friendship and co-operation Aug. 9, which first raised the question of whether India's neu- tralist role was being whittled down in face of new concern about ils always-uneasy rela- tions with Pakistan. India has denied that the treaty is anything more than its titln suggests. In late October Mrs. Gandhi is making an IB- day tour of Western capitals, where one of her main aims will be to persuade her hosts that th: treaty does not mean the end of a non-alignment for New Delhi. HAS BEEN INVITED The Western tour, which takes her to Belgium, Austria, Brit- ain, the United Stales, France and West Germany, is largely in response to long-standing in- vitations. But if the Moscow trip has not seriously disturbed the Western governments, it can hardly have increased their belief in New Delhi's protestations that India remains entirely neutral. And if India's relations with the Soviet Union are strong, those with the U.S. are dis- Print taken from severed finger TORONTO (CP) Police have arrested a 19-year-old youth after a print taken from a severed finger print found in the wreckage of a car Monday was compared with fingerprints on record.

Most people believe that the treaty with (he Soviet Union war. signed because India felt it needed friends at a time when tension was again building up with Pakistan. West and East Pakistan are separated from each other by more than miles of Indian territory. ido-Pakistani rela- tions have never been good since the division of the Indian sub-continent in 1947, and the countries have twice fought wars over the border state of Kashmir. PAKISTAN KEY TOPIC Clearly the East Pakistan sit- uation will dominate discussions in the capitals Mrs. Gandhi will visit. But even the Russians are expected to caution India once again against any moves that could lead to a war with Paki- stan, such as recognition of the self proclaimed government of Bangla Desh. Few expect the talks in Wash- ington to result in any change in the American position on Paki- stan. The has been the largest aid donor for the refugees, but Mrs. Gandhi will seek to im- press upon Nixon that a halt to all American aid to Pakistan would be one way of exerting pressure on Pakistan Lo change policies that have caused Uie continuing refugee flow. President there is some drastic rethinking in be expected to reaffirm that he wants to keep some lines open to Pakistan and use his influence that way.
