52. Mr. Singh (India), speaking in exercise of the right of reply to the remarks made by the representative of Pakistan on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir, said that, in pursuit of its foreign policy objectives, Pakistan was seeking to divide the ranks of those who supported the sovereignty of Lebanon and the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people. His delegation wished to reaffirm that India would not change its policy with respect to Lebanon and the rights of the Palestinian people.

53. Mr. Ahmad (Pakistan), speaking in exercise of the right of reply, said, with respect to the Indian representative’s remarks on the self-determination of the people of Kashmir, that his delegation had merely stated facts when referring to the state of Kashmir and the question of the Middle East and Palestine. The representative of India had completely misconstrued his delegation’s statement.

The meeting rose at 5.35 p.m.
