    Background: Indian and Chinese Premiers, Pandit Nehru and Chou-En-Lai, met at Mr. Nehru's residence in New Delhi, April 20, for a total of four hours of discussions on the Sino-Indian border question. Indian Defence Minister, Krishna Menon, was called in on the afternoon session.

    Premier Chou En-Lai, accompanied by his Foreign Minister, Chen Yi, began the day--the second of his scheduled week's visit- by laying a wreath on Ghandi's tomb, then drove to President Prasad's residence for a courtesy call.

    At a banquet given that evening in honour of Premier Chou En-Lai, Mr. Nehru said of the border dispute; "We shall endeavour to do our utmost so that our efforts may lead to success and to the maintenance of peace with dignity and self-respect for both our nations."
    The Chinese Premier had said disoute was "only an issue of a limited and temporary nature compared with the fundamental question of preserving friendly co-operation between our two countries. To use a common Chinese expression, it concerns only one finger out of ten."
    From India, the Chinese Premier will go on to Nepal for discussions of the latest Chinese territorial claim...Mount Everest.
