Pakistan--Neutral Ally?

June 1956
New Republic;6/4/56, Vol. 134 Issue 23, p4
This article focuses on Pakistan's relations with China. The President of Pakistan, Major General Iskander Mirza, appealed for U.S. recognition of Communist China, thus endorsing the very policy on China which has made India so unpopular. Like Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, General Mirza interprets his China policy to the West as a means for detaching China from Soviet control. U.S. must sooner or later move from its present tentative uncertainty about Asian neutralism to an explicit recognition that Asian nationalism is here to stay.
