§ 103. Mr. Donner
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations whether his attention has been drawn to the refusal of Kalat to join Pakistan; and whether it is intended to offer, without prejudice to Kalat's relationship to the Dominion, a treaty of friendship and/or alliance to the Khan.
§ Mr. Gordon-Walker
My attention has been drawn to a Press report that Kalat has refused to accede to Pakistan. I have no reason to believe, however, that negotiations have come to an end. I understand that a standstill agreement is in force.
