    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 2): CHINESE DELEGATE: "The Albanian representative challenged the right of representation of my Government. Now let me say at once that the Government that I have the honour to represent was one of the four sponsoring Governments at the San Francisco conference which brought the United Nations into being. We, the Republic of China, firmly state in the Security Council, by virtue of its tremendous national sacrifices and contributions during the Second World War. It has for over a quarter of a century, with the continuity of leader ship and policy unparalleled in contemporary history, collaborated in the work of the United Nations."
