  • Description

    The United Nations General Assembly wound up the debate on the admission of the People's Republic of China late on December 14. The following day's session therefore started with the vote. First the 104-member assembly voted 61 to 34 with 7 abstentions to treat the matter as an important issue. This meant that a two-thirds majority was required to change the present situation in which Nationalist China represents China at the U.N.

    A vote was then taken on a Soviet-sponsored resolution calling for the immediate removal from all U.N. organs of the representatives of Nationalist China and for the admission, instead, of the People's Republic of China.
