Currently Inadvisable to Invite Kakodkar to Visit China


Embassy in Morocco:


We received your cable of 9 August. According to the investigation and report of the Chinese embassy in India, Goan People's Party general secretary Kakodkar is a well known leader of the Goa movement, and is currently a member of the Bombay (Maharashtra State) Indian Communist Party committee. According to [relevant] people in the Indian Communist Party, the Party is currently strengthening its work in Goa, and it would be inadvisable for Kakodkar to go to China before India's election. At the same time, given that neither he nor the Indian Communist Party Central Committee have formally proposed [a visit], we consider it best not to invite him to China for the time being. Should Braganca ask, you can respond that a report has been sent to China. Please continue to report on any new circumstances.
