  • Description

    THE UN ONCE AGAIN CLOSED THE DOOR TO MEMBERSHIP FOR THE REPUBLIC OF CHINA. YESTERDAY'S (MONDAY'S) VOTE WAS 57 AGAINST, 41 IN FAVOR, WITH 12 ABSTENTIONS ON AN ALBANIAN-CAMBODIAN PROPOSAL TO ADMIT THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA AND EXPEL NATIONAL CHINA.

    LAST YEAR THE VOTE WAS 56 AGAINST, 42 IN FAVOR AND 12 ABSTENTIONS. ADLAI STEVENSON, THE CHIEF AMERICAN DELEGATE TOLD REPORTERS AFTERWARDS THAT THE UNITED STATES "IS VERY PLEASED BY THE VOTE." LIU CHIEH, THE NATIONALIST CHINESE AMBASSADOR, SAID, "WE RE VERY GRATIFIED."
    VOTING YES WERE BRITAIN, DENMARK, FINLAND, NORWAY, SWEDEN AND MANY AFRO-ASIAN NATIONS. INDIA - WHICH HAD CHAMPIONED THE ADMISSION BEFORE THE BORDER DISPUTE WITH CHINA - ALSO VOTED YES, BUT REMAINED SILENT IN THE DEBATE.

    CYPRUS, MALAYSIA, AND TOGO SWITCHED FROM ABSTENTIONS TO NO THI YEAR. MAURITANIA SWITCHED FROM NO TO ABSTENTION WHILE YEMEN CROSSED FROM NO TO YES. SIERRA LEONE SWITCHED FROM YES TO ABSTENTION; KUWAIT ABSTAINED; ETHIOPIA WAS ABSENT.

    ALBANIA PUSHED THE CHINESE BID THIS YEAR RATHER THAN THE SOVIET UNION. NO COMMUNIST STATE JOINED AS A CO-SPONSOR, AND RUSSIA - WHILE URGING ADOPTION OF THE RESOLUTION - REFRAINED FROM THE CUSTOMARY VERBAL ATTACK ON AMERICA.
