  • Description

    At the continuing China debate in the United Nations General Assembly on Monday, delegates who support the entry of the People's Republic of China argued that a procedural resolution to admit the country only on a two-thirds majority should be rejected. The same delegates also argued against the Kuomintang Regime continuing to hold a seat at the United Nations -- the idea of "two China's" was not acceptable, they said, and the latter should be expelled.

    Mr Lazar Mojsov, the delegate from Yugoslavia, said the continuing isolation of the People's Republic of China was a negative influence on world relations and the position and prestige of the United Nations.

    Mr Salim A. Salim, the Tanzanian ambassador to the United Nations, told the Assembly that the Kuomintang Regime of Generalissimo Chiang Kai Shek had illegally occupied its seat for the past 21 years. IT had managed this, he said, under the protection of a "great power" which was also a permanent member of the Security Council.

    Although the United States of America has dropped opposition to entry by the People's Republic of China, a procedural draft to admit it only on a two-thirds majority is expected to be accepted by the Assembly. In recent weeks, Canada and Italy have recognised the People's Republic , and Canada has said it will vote for its admission to the United Nations at the end of the current debate. The closest previous vote against the People's Republic was a 47-47 tie in 1965 -- not enough for admission under the two-thirds majority required.
