Nehru after Khrushchev Meeting: "Foul Winds of War Are Blowing"

Sept. 7, 1961 - Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru of India talked for two hours today with Premier Khrushchev at the Kremlin and came out gloomy. "Once again the foul winds of war are blowing," Mr. Nehru said. "There are atomic tests and the world grows fearful. Once the door of war is opened, life on earth will be completely extinguished. It is strange that when man has the power to improve the lot of humanity and to open the doors of progress, the ghost of war should fall on us. I cannot understand why man should do this." Mr. Nehru made his remarks at a meeting of Indian students and diplomats living in Moscow.
