    Background: THE INDIAN PRIME MINISTER, MR. LAL BAHADUR SHASTRI, WARNED PAKISTAN TODAY (WEDNESDAY) THAT THE INDIAN ARMY WILL CHOOSE ITS OWN BATTLEGROUND UNLESS PAKISTAN CEASES ATTACKS IN THE RANN OF KUTCH AREA. SPEAKING IN THE INDIAN PARLIAMENT, HE SAID THAT FIGHTING IN THE DISPUTED AREA WAS CONTINUING WITH TANKS AND ARMOURED VEHICLES IN SUPPORT OF INFANTRY.

    THIS WAS MR. SHASTRI'S FIRST STATEMENT ON THE DISPUTE THIS WEEK. HE RETURNED TO DELHI YESTERDAY AFTER A THREE DAY GOODWILL VISIT TO NEPAL, WHERE HE HAD BEEN THE GUEST OF KING MAHENDRA.

    THE INDIAN LEADER FLEW INTO KATMANDU ON FRIDAY TO BEGIN THE VISIT. HE WAS GREETED BY MEMBERS OF THE NEPAL GOVERNMENT AND MEMBERS OF THE DIPLOMATIC CORPS. DURING THE VISIT, MR. SHASTRI VISITED DEVELOPMENTAL PROJECTS IN NEPAL, ATTENDED CIVIC RECEPTIONS AND WAS RECEIVED BY THE NEPALESE ROYAL FAMILY.

    THE VISIT UNDERLINED THE CLOSE TIES BETWEEN NEPAL AND INDIA, AND GAVE THE INDIAN PRIME MINISTER AN OPPORTUNITY TO SEE AT FIRST HAND HOW AID FROM HIS COUNTRY TO NEPAL WAS BEING USED. HE ALSO DISCUSSED RELATIONS BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES AT A MEETING WITH MR. SURYA BAHADUR THAPA, CHAIRMAN OF NEPAL'S COUNCIL OF MINISTERS, BUT NO DETAILS OF THEIR DISCUSSIONS WERE DIVULGED.
