Record Number10303
DescriptionThe file contains:
a. Translation of speech made by Mr. Monsef, Deputy of Parliament, May 16, 1947. The speech given by Mr. Monsef voices the frustrations and disappointment felt regarding Afghanistan's secret canal and dam construction and lack of intervention undergone by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
b. Translation of speech made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs before the "Majlis", May 17, 1947. The speech given by the minister expresses his concerns with the lack of good will displayed by Afghanistan after they refused to acknowledge the 1938 Agreement declaration and extinguished all attempts to study the entire length of the Helmand river. The speech also addresses the recent involvement of the United States government in the dispute. Following attempted negotiations in Washington D.C., the US government recommended the formation of a technical party consisting of three representatives from disinterested countries.
