This chapter relates that Jawaharlal Nehru of India met Nasser in Yugoslavia shortly before the latter's nationalization of the Suez Canal Company. Nehru did not have a high regard for Nasser's intellect. He did not deny Egypt's right to nationalize; but he regretted Nasser's method as ‘intemperate and even warmongering’. Conversely, Nehru respected Eden's achievement at the Geneva conference on Indo-China and generally regarded him as a judicious statesman. During the part of the Suez crisis up to the invasion, Nehru worked with the British to reduce tension and to find a peaceful solution, though to Eden it may have appeared as untoward interference.
