  • Description

    Soviet representative Mr. Yakov A. Malik condemned proposals to reduce the United States' contribution to the United Nations when the General Assembly discussed apportionment of expenses on Wednesday (13 December).

    The U.S., which now pays 31.52 per cent of the total budget under the present scale of assessment, had proposed new rules that no member should contribute more than the rule-change.

    During a debate described by observers as "bitter", Mr. Malik accused the U.S. of "direct threats and blackmail". But the resolution was passed by 81 to 27, with 22 abstentions.

    SYNOPSIS: The United Nations has passed a United States' resolution that no member shall pay more than a quarter of the total costs. The US has been contributing nearly a third. But there were strong comments, especially from the Soviet speaker Yakov Malik.
