    LS Delegate of the USSR Jacob Malik entering the conference room for meeting of UN Security Council, surrounded by large numbers of pressmen. LS Malik as President calls together the meeting, speaking in Russian. Interpreter interrupts by saying 'Mr President, gentlemen I presume that in accordance with our customary procedure. If there are no comments I shall consider that this order of interpretation is accepted.' Malik continues speaking in Russian. MS Malik speaking. LS Warren Austen speaking. He challenges the right of Malik to rule on the right of the Chinese Nationalist Government's representative to sit in the Chinese place at the UN. MS Malik seated looks around the assembly. MS Malik speaking in Russian (Interpreter interrupts says 'There are no further speakers I presume that silence is a mark of consent) (Nat.. snd.) Malik continues. MS British delegate Sir Gladwyn Jebb speaking says: 'I'm afraid Mr President that I must also challenge your ruling on the point. It does not seem to me to be in order for the President to give any such ruling as you have now given. Article 17 of the rules of procedure, I will call your attention to this article. Mr President reads as follows. 'Any representative on the Security Council to whose credentials objection has been raise within the Security Council, shall continue to sit with the same rights as other representatives until the Security Council has decided the latter.' Now whatever yours or any other members feelings on the subject may be Mr President, the fact remains that the Security Council have not decided that the credentials of the representative of China at this table are not in order and consequently it seems to us that an effort by you sire to rule that the representative of China should be excluded is an effort if I may say so to overcome what is, at the moment anyway, the majority view in regard to the representation of China in this council. Consequently it seems to me that it is essential for this body to challenge your ruling and I associate myself with my American colleague in doing this, and therefore, I would like to challenge the ruling and ask you to take a vote whether your ruling is upheld or not." LS Malik looks toward the interpreter who says 'Does anybody else wish to speak?' pans across to French Delegate speaking - He agrees with France and Britain. LS Malik speaking at length.
