SV. Soviet (Russian) Delegate in the United Nations, Jacob Malik, seated at desk. CU. Malik speaking: (natural sound): "The Soviet people further believe that the most acute problem of the present day - the problem of the armed conflict in Korea could also be settled. This would require the readiness of the parties to enter on the path of peaceful settlement of the Korea problem. The Soviet people believe that as the first step discussion should be started between the belligerents for a cease fire and an armistice providing for the mutual withdrawal of forces from the 38th parallel. Can such a step be taken? I think it can, provided there is a sincere desire to put an end to the bloody fighting in Korea."
