  • Description


    NEW YORK SKYLINE AND U.N. BUILDING: U.N. INSIGNIA: JIMENEZ SPEAKING. (SOF)



    JIMENEZ: FOR THOSE WHO MAKE A FETISH OF THE IDEA OF UNIVERSALITY AND INVOKED IT ON BEHALF OF THE PEOPLES' REPUBLIC OF CHINA, LET ME POINT OUT THAT FROM THE TIME OF ITS CONCEPTION THE UNITED NATIONS HAS BEEN DESIGNED PRIMARILY AS AN ORGANIZATION FOR MAINTAINING AND ENFORCING PEACE. THE PRINCIPLE OF UNIVERSALITY WAS SUGGESTED BY SOME STATES AT SAN FRANCISCO BUT THIS WAS REJECTED IN FAVOUR OF THE PROVISION IN ARTICLE FOUR OF THE CHARTER WHICH IN EFFECT RESTRICTS MEMBERSHIP TO AND I QUOTE "THESE LOVING STATES WHICH ACCEPT THE OBLIGATIONS IN THE PRESENT CHARTER AND ARE ABLE AND WILLING TO CARRY OUT THESE OBLIGATIONS." UNQUOTE. THESE ARE THE OBLIGATIONS THAT THE PEOPLES' REPUBLIC OF CHINA MUST MEET IF IT WANTS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE WORLD OF THE UNITED NATIONS. THE FACT HOWEVER, IS THAT THE PEOPLES' REPUBLIC OF CHINA HAS YET TO DEMONSTRATE ITS COMMITMENT TO THE CAUSE OF PEACE NOT TO MENTION THE OTHER PRINCIPLES AND PURPOSES ENSHRINED IN THE CHARTER OF THE UNITED NATIONS.
