Shankar: Shankar's Weekly, November 5, 1950
US President Truman and Secretary of State Acheson when the Chinese entered Tibet.
(Shankar / Shankar's Weekly / November 5, 1950)

On October 7, 1950, Tibet is invaded.
Delhi's first reaction was to be "extremely perplexed and disappointed at the Chinese Government's action." But for The Daily Telegraph in London: "Regret possible, but why by surprise? From the very beginning of the year, the liberation of Tibet had been proclaimed over radio as a task of the Chinese Communist Government."
Ultimately, India did not take a stand against Beijing’s action.
