Note about a Meeting of Foreign Minister Otto Winzer with the Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi
Minutes of a meeting between East German Foreign Minister Otto Winzer and Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

They then discuss India-Pakistan hostility, and blame Western countries for trying to keep the two states separate, and express hope for peace between India and Pakistan. Winzer then pushes for Indira Gandhi to normalize relations with East Germany. Gandhi gives a non-committal response, and the report concludes by speculating that Indira Gandhi has not yet decided to normalize relations, noting that some of her advisors will wait on the opinions of the FRG before moving on GDR.
