   Following is the speech made by Premier Chou En-lai at the banquet given by tern on December 17 in honour of the Sudanese High Status Official Delegation. Subheads are ours. — Ed.
   We are very glad that the Sudanese High Status Official Delegation led by Major General Khalid Hassan Abbas, Deputy President, Minister of Defence and Commander-in-Chief of the People's Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of the Sudan, has come to China for a friendly visit at the invitation of the Chinese Government, bringing with them the profound friendly sentiments of the Sudanese people for the Chinese people. On behalf of the Chinese Government and people, I extend warm welcome to His Excellency Deputy President Abbas and the other distinguished guests from the Sudan.
   The Sudanese people are a people with a glorious anti-imperialist revolutionary tradition. We are glad to note that since the May revolution of the Sudan, the Sudanese people, under the leadership of President Nimeri, have made continuous achievements in liquidating the colonialist forces, safeguarding their national independence and state sovereignty and developing their national economy. This year, the Sudanese Government and people have again victoriously smashed a foreign subversive plot. In international affairs, the Sudanese Government and people support the Palestinian and other Arab peoples in their struggle against U.S.-Israeli aggression, support the three Indochinese peoples' struggle against U.S. aggression and for national salvation, support the U.N. General Assembly resolution calling for ceasefire and troop withdrawal by India and Pakistan, and support other Afro-Asian countries in their struggles to safeguard national independence, oppose imperialist aggression and subversion and win national liberation, thus making valuable contributions to the Afro-Asian cause of unity against imperialism. The Chinese Government and people express admiration and appreciation for the just stand you have taken and sincerely wish you continuous new victories on all fronts.

Condemning Indian Aggression Against Pakistan

   At present, the international situation is developing in a direction increasingly favourable to the peoples and unfavourable to imperialism and its lackeys. However, imperialism and the reactionaries are not reconciled to their defeat; they are continuing to make trouble and put up death-bed struggles. With the active support of social-imperialism, the Indian reactionaries have recently launched a barbarous war of aggression against Pakistan, trampled upon Pakistan territory, slaughtered Pakistan people, and wildly attempted lo impose on Pakistan the so-called "Bangla Desh" puppet regime, which they have manufactured single-handedly. The Indian reactionaries' act of naked aggression has aroused the heroic resistance of the Pakistan people and the indignant condemnation of the people of the whole world. With the support of the overwhelming majority of 104 votes, the United Nations General Assembly adopted on December 7, 1971 a resolution calling for immediate ceasefire and troop withdrawal. This; resolution reflects the common will and just demand of the people of the world, but the Indian Government, truculently impervious to reason, brazenly rejected the resolution, persisted in its armed attacks and invaded and occupied the eastern part of Pakistan and its capital Dacca, thus laying completely bare the Indian expansionists' wild ambition to annex Pakistan and bring about a Greater Indian Empire.
   The whole world knows that it is solely because of the bolstering by social-imperialism that the Indian reactionaries have dared to launch a war of aggression against Pakistan and become so insolent. The Indian expansionists and social-imperialism have worked hand in glove and echoed each other. In order to support the Indian aggressors' frenzied attacks, the social-imperialists repeatedly used the veto in the United Nations in obstructing a ceasefire. The raving clamours of their representative and the draft resolutions put forward by him in the United Nations are actually a refurbished version of the surrender terms which the Indian reactionaries have tried to impose on Pakistan in a wild attempt to legalize the Indian aggressors' military occupation of East Pakistan and legalize the puppet regime which they have created. It is what all the countries and peoples that love peace and uphold justice should not agree to.

Social-Imperialists' Pipe Dream

   Social-imperialism has always been unscrupulous in carrying out aggression and expansion and contending for world hegemony. In the Middle East, flaunting the signboard of "maintaining peace,"' it is trying by every means to obstruct Arab countries from recovering their lost territories and undermine the armed struggle of the Palestinian and other Arab peoples against the U.S.-Israeli aggressors. On the Indo-Pakistan subcontinent, on the other hand, it is flaunting the signboard of "supporting national liberation" and has given all-out support to Indian armed aggression against Pakistan. In the Middle East, social-imperialism is opposed to the Palestinian people taking up arms in a just struggle for the return to their homeland and the restoration of their national rights. On the Indo-Pakistan subcontinent, on the other hand, it is taking support for the return of the East Pakistan refugees to their homeland as a pretext for backing the Indian aggressors in launching the armed intervention and creating a puppet regime with bayonets. Whether social-imperialism talks about "maintaining peace" or "supporting national liberation," they are all lies; the truth is that it is exploiting every opportunity and seeking every pretext to realize its ambition of aggression and expansion and contending for world hegemony. Its purpose in opposing the armed struggle of the Palestinian and other Arab peoples is to control those areas and turn them into its sphere of influence, and to contend for hegemony in the Middle East and the Mediterranean Sea. Its purpose in supporting Indian aggression and expansion is to control India and contend for hegemony in the South Asian subcontinent and the Indian Ocean. The doings of social-imperialism are aimed at realizing the pipe dream of establishing a world empire which "military-feudal imperialism*' failed to realize.

Better Not Rejoice too Soon!

   However, no armed force can subjugate any people who arc determined to safeguard their slate sovereignty and territorial integrity. The Indian aggressors and the social-imperialists had better not rejoice too soon. The fall of Dacca is definitely not a so-called "milestone" towards victory for the Indian aggressors, but the starting point of endless strife on the South Asian subcontinent and of their defeat. The Pakistan people's struggle against foreign aggression and in defence of their state sovereignty and territorial integrity is not isolated; it has received and will continue to receive the sympathy and support of all the countries and peoples of the world that uphold jus) ice. The Chinese Government and people will, as always, firmly support the Pakistan Government and people in their just struggle. We are deeply convinced that no matter what difficulties and dangers may arise, so long as the Pakistan people maintain their unity and persist in struggle, final victory surely belongs to the great Pakistan people who are fighting heroically against aggression!
Friends and comrades,
   The Chinese and Sudanese peoples have formed a profound militant friendship in the struggle against imperialism and colonialism. Our two peoples have always sympathized with and supported each other. The Sudanese Government and people have worked actively for the restoration of all the legitimate rights of the People's Republic of China in the United Nations. We express our heartfelt thanks to the Sudanese Government and people for their valuable support. We note with satisfaction that the friendly relations and co-operation between our two countries have been steadily developing on the basis of the Five Principles of Peaceful coexistence. The visit of President Nimeri and Major General Abbas to our countiy last year has made important contributions to the friendly relations and co-operation between our two countries. The present friendly visit to our country by His Excellency Deputy President Abbas at the head of the Sudanese High Status Official Delegation will further promote the development of the friendship between our two peoples and the friendly relations and co-operation between our two countries. We sincerely wish success to Deputy President Abbas' visit.
