  • Description

    THE PREVAILING NOTE IN WORLD REACTION TO CHINA'S NUCLEAR TEST HAS BEEN ONE OF REGRET. BUT THE EXPLOSION WAS ALSO USED AS AN ARGUMENT FOR THE ADMISSION OF THE CHINESE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC TO THE UNITED NATIONS.

    ONE OF MANY PROTESTS AGAINST THE DETONATION WAS IN COPENHAGEN WHERE ANTI-NUCLEAR CAMPAIGNERS GATHERED OUTSIDE THE EMBASSY OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC. THEY TRIED TO DELIVER A NOTE AT THE DOOR, BUT WERE TOLD THE EMBASSY HAD CLOSED FOR THE NIGHT.

    THE DANISH FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. PER HAEKKERUP, SAID THE BLAST WAS "YET ANOTHER ARGUMENT FOR GIVING CHINA A PLACE IN THE UNITED NATIONS", EVEN THOUGH THIS WOULD NOT MAKE INTERNATIONAL DISARMAMENT AGREEMENTS ANY EASIER.

    THE STRONGEST CONDEMNATION OF CHINA CAME FROM NEIGHBOURING INDIA WHERE MR. SHASTRI, THE PRIME MINISTER, CALLED THE ATOMIC EXPLOSION A DANGER AND A MENACE TO MANKIND.

    PEKING NEWSPAPERS THIS MORNING HEADLINED YESTERDAY'S GOVERNMENT STATEMENT ON THE SUCCESSFUL ATOMIC EXPLOSION, BUT GAVE NO NEW DETAILS OF THE TEST.

    PRESIDENT JOHNSON IS EXPECTED TO DISCUSS THE CHINESE NUCLEAR EXPLOSION WHEN HE MEETS WITH THE NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL IN WASHINGTON TODAY.
