courtesy calls on various officials there
we preceeded to New Delhi where we
were equally well received by the
government officials of India. We then
proceeded to Srinagar in the vale of
Kashmir to inspect the area which is
the subject of our mission. Some of
our party accompanied Dr. Graham
on a 200-mile motor trip from Srin
agar to Rawalpindi through the cease
fire line in the foothills (as they are
locally described) of the Himalayas.
These ‘foothills’ rise to six and seven
thousand feet and the route through
them may be described as a series of
‘hair-pin’ curves. A substantial part of
this journey was along the banks of the
swift-flowing Jhelum River.
“After arriving in Rawalpindi, Pak
istan, we made two additional motor
trips for the purpose of meeting local

officials and getting a first-hand
knowledge of the terrain.
“Later the United Nations plane
transported us to Karachi where Dr.
Graham and his principal secretary,
Mr. Petrus Schmidt, and General
Devers engaged in several informal
discussions with Mr. Liaquat Ali Khan,
prime minister of Pakistan, and Mr.
Zafrulla Khan, foreign minister of
Pakistan. Afterwards we returned to
Delhi where informal talks are now
being held with Prime Minister Nehru
and his associates. We will go to
Srinagar, Kashmir, from here for a
few days. Thereafter we expect to
spend the remainder of our time in
the capitals of India and Pakistan.
Incidentally, you probably already
know India is the second most pop
ulous nation, and Pakistan, with over
eighty million inhabitants, is now the
fifth largest nation in the world.
“Kashmir is one of the unsolved
problems growing out of the imple
menation of the Indian Independence
Act in 1947 which resulted in the
creation of India and Pakistan as
separate nations out of British India.
Each of these two nations asserts
claim to Kashmir, one of the largest
states formerly constituting British
India. At present about half of Kash
mir territory is occupied by Indian
troops and the other half by Pakistan
troops. In January 1949 a United Na
tions Commission was successful in
obtaining a cease-fire agreement. At
present a small group of United Na
tions military officers under the lead
ership of General Nimmo of Australia
are assisting the parties in maintain
ing the cease-fire agreement.
“India and Pakistan also agreed to
two resolutions of the United Nations
