276 Gollan to Department of External Affairs
Cablegram 182 NEW DELHI, 5 March 1949, 3.20 p.m.
According to Bajpai, Soekarno has written to Beel saying that he is hopeful of a Hague Conference provided the Indonesians can first function as a Government. Soekarno also insists that any such meeting must be without prejudice to member nations of the Commission, which Bajpai interprets as meaning that any conference must be under the Commission's auspices.
Bajpai has privately seen a State Department aide-memoire  to the effect that the United States still remains undisposed to interfere in any way with Marshall aid to Holland.
