"The Chinese people are friend-

told the 29-nation Asian-African
conference. "The Chinese people
do not want war with the Unitedl
States of America.
Willing to Discuss
"The Chinese government is wil-
ling," Chou continued, "to sit down

West negotiator, was among those
who received Chou's statement fa-,
Asked whether he thought the
United States would accept Chou's
offer of negotiations, U Nu re-
plied :
"Yes, I think so. That is also the
opinion of all five Colombo states.
I feel very strongly that direct1
talks between the two states will
be helpful.''
Indonesian Premier Ali Sastroa-
midjojo expressed hope also the
United States would accept.
There was no immediate com-
ment from India's Prime Ministerr

A spokesman for the Peiping"
delegation, asked if Chou would
have anything to add to the state-
ment, replied "we will now awaitt
