  • Description

    ALBANIA IS SUPPORTING DEMANDS THAT THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA BE ADMITTED TO THE UNITED NATIONS. HER DELEGATE, MR. HALIM BUDO, YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) ASKED THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO APPROVE A DRAFT RESOLUTION BACKING CHINESE ENTRY.

    BESIDES ALBANIA, OTHER NATIONS SPONSORING THE RESOLUTION ARE: ALGERIA, BURUNDI, CAMBODIA, CONGO (BRAZZAVILLE), CUBA, GHANA, GUINEA, MALI, RUMANIA AND SYRIA. TO MAKE WAY FOR CHINA, THEY WANT TAIWAN EXPELLED.

    BUT CEYLON HAS PRESENTED AN AMENDMENT, WHICH WOULD DELETE ALL MENTION OF TAIWAN'S EXPULSION. THERE WAS NO IMMEDIATE REACTION FROM THE PEKING SPONSORS, BUT THEY HAVE ALREADY MADE IT CLEAR IN SPEECHES THAT THERE CANNOT BE TWO SEATS. CHINA HERSELF SUPPORTS THIS VIEW.

    MEANWHILE, THE UNITED STATES AND 10 OTHER NATIONS, OPPOSING CHINESE ENTRY, HAVE PRESENTED A MOTION TO ENSURE THAT THE QUESTION IS DECIDED BY A TWO-THIRDS' MAJORITY. PEKING SUPPORTERS HAVE REJECTED THIS ARGUMENT, INSISTING THAT THE ISSUE IS ONE OF "RESTORATION OF THE LAWFUL RIGHTS OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA".

    THE DEBATE IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TODAY.
