  • Description

    The entire Pakistan delegation walked out of the United Nations Security Council yesterday (15 December) after Foreign Minister Zulfikar Bhutto tore up all the draft resolutions presented there. In a bitter speech, Mr. Bhutto denounced the Council's "dilatory tactics" and said that his country would not be bound by any decisions it now might take.

    Mr. Bhutto, who arrived at the U.N. on Friday, said he would not be a party to legalised occupation and aggression. He refused to return to Pakistan with any "document of surrender." The Security Council has failed in several attempts to draft a ceasefire resolution since the war on the sub-continent began on December 3. The Soviet Union has cast three vetoes. Yesterday's Council meeting came in the wake of reports from East Pakistan that the Pakistani commander had sought a ceasefire.
