    Lake Success, United States of America (USA).

    Title reads 'Malik's Month of Obstruction Ends at UN'.

    LS. The Security Council of the United Nations Organisation in session. MS. Soviet delegate Jacob Malik seated at session. American delegate Warren Austen speaking. Various shots of Waren Austin speaking (natural sound): 'I will not violate the good sense - the common sense of the people of the world by making the extravagant, this sickening claims that we have had to listen to here today. Is it possible that they believe that the people of the world have not intelligence enough to see through these absurd charges that they made (refers to Russian delegate Jacob Malik)'. Malik leaving the char. Delegates leaving after meeting. SCU. Waren Austin continues to speak: 'It is clear that the Soviet Government hoped Mr Malik could block the United Nations military effort to protect the Republic of Korea. Did he do so? No, he totally failed. The Soviet representative tried to sew division among the members of the Council and to isolate the United States from its colleagues. That he failed to do. The Council was more firmly united on the fundamental issues the last day of Mr Malik's presidency than it was on the first day.'
