    COMMENTATOR: "This is the 31st anniversary of the United Nations - U.N. Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim."



    KURT WALDHEIM: "We began with 51 member states and now we have nearly three times as many with very different views and very different political and ideological backgrounds. What you see in the United Nations is just the reflection of the world today."



    COMMENTATOR:"The United Nations was designed to operate on respect, respect for its decisions, adherence to its principles. It needs your respect and understanding, because public support does influence national policy and national policies shape the U.N. Today we live in an interdependent world, with global problems which cannot be solved in isolation."



    The future of mankind may well depend on whether the sovereign nations of the world want to make the United Nations work."
