  • Description

    M. Maurice Schumann, the French Foreign Minister, covered a wide ranged of topics when he addressed the United Nations' General Assembly in New York on Tuesday (September 26).

    He said France unconditionally condemned what he called "acts of terrorism and reprisals which are increasing the numbers of innocent victims". M. Schumann said he was speaking on behalf of a country which "has allies but neither has nor wants enemies."
    Other subjects he mentioned included the European Common Market. In pra???ing the Market, M. Schumann pointed out that whereas its aims were economic, those of the U.N. would be political. He also praised the UN Secretary General, Card Waldheim, as a man who "excelled in every intellectual quality".

    M. Schumann ended his address with a plea for human rights.
