Indian re ception of Secretary of State Dul lea1 joint statement with the Portu guese foreign minister on Portu gals Indian colonies Opportune Trip These sources said Washington has come to think Coopers trij is extremely opportune for a re examination of policy As a result the envoy during the past two weeks has been having intensive talks with dozens of top Indian officials leading Western diplo mats and his own staff He climaxed these discussions Tuesday with a long private visi With Prime Minister Nehru American circles here think policy will have to strike out along two new paths One points toward more econom ic aid to meet still vague Soviet promises in this field Many Ameri cans here believe a firm commit ment to assist Indias second five year plan starting in April woulc boost the U S position consider ably For this five year period circles here think Washington should offer India between 500 mil lion and 600 million dollars in eco aid grants loans and tech nical assistance This is more than double the amount of aid over the past four years Second The second suggested path leads to a firmer Western policy India In the past the United States refrained from publicly attacking New Delhis policy of nonalign ment in the cold war Now many diplomatic observers here think while the United States is giving India aid prefer ably any ally like tell New Delhi that its policy no longer appears neutral in Western eyes and that the new close Rus sianIndia ties are not in the in terest either of India or the West ern Allies These observers feel such warning would force Nehru to criticize the Russians publicly Since the Soviet visit he has been rapping the West public ly but all his harsh words for the Russians have been confined to private meetings with his aides
