MONITOR: CLINTON VISITS THE INDIAN SUB-CONTINENT ; Comment on the Issues Raised by President Clinton's Tour of India, Bangladesh and Pakistan

Pakistan

WHILE THE Pakistanis have remained gratified with President Clinton's persistent portrayal of Kashmir as the world's most inflammable flashpoint, the Indians are now jubilant over Secretary of State Albright's recent utterance regarding the sanctity of the Line of Control. Similarly, the Indians were dismayed and the Pakistanis heartened over Mr Clinton's statement that India's non- compliance with the UN resolutions on Kashmir had forfeited it a permanent seat on the UN Security Council. This confusion and contradiction in the US utterances may be intentional, to keep both the sides in good humour.

We thank President Clinton for visiting us, and hope that he will continue to be a friend of Bangladesh.
