India, the Honest Broker

Feer, Mark

New Republic;9/7/53, Vol. 129 Issue 6, p8
The article highlights that India's position as chairman of the Neutral Nations Repatriation Commission in Korea was established by the UN. India's Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru is by no means convinced that the Western democracies hold a monopoly of the will to world peace. Nor is his active and friendly policy toward China motivated by the traditional Western objective of, leaning Peking away from Moscow. He realizes that India lacks the means with which to effect such a break. Thus, the primary goal of India's China policy remains her role as an honest broker for peace.
