  • Description

    Five hundred people, including diplomate, personalities and show business personalities attended a luncheon in a New York hotel yesterday (Wednesday) in honour of U Thant, the retiring Secretary General of the United Nations.

    Accepting the title of "World Citizen No 1" from the Association of World Federalists, U Thant started off a campaign to collect a million signatures on a "declaration of world citizenship." He said in his speech that the concept of "my nation, right or wrong" was the single greatest obstacle to the development of institutions like the United Nations.
