Comrade Nepal Nag

Nepal Nag, one of the founders of the Communist Party of Dhaka, attended the international meeting of Communist Parties held in Moscow, November 1960, as a representative from East Pakistan. During this conference the international communist movement was sharply divided between those supporting Moscow and the supporters of Peking. Nepal Nag's diary is an unpublished source about this historical conference. Nag listened to a speech by the Albanian leader Enver Hoxha on 16 November 1960. Other speakers he mentions are Deng Xiaoping, Ho Chi Minh, and Gomulka.
