The Ambassador in India (Henderson) to the Secretary of State

1488. During talk with Bajpai December 1, I referred to problem Tibet. He said GoI has not as yet received expected appeal from Tibet for assistance in resisting possible Chinese Communist aggression. In any event there was little GoI could do. It seemed probable that in no distant future Chinese Communists would take over Tibet. GoI had however suggested to Nepalese Government that it take steps to prevent Communist infiltration from Tibet and warned it that unless it adopted more enlightened and modern regime it might fall as result internal Communist inspired uprisings without any overt closing of frontiers.
