  • Description

    Michael Stewart, the British Foreign Secretary, delivered his nation's statement in the general debate at the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday (7 October). Mr. Stewart stated his government's position on a number of current international issues and made several proposals.

    On Vietnam, the Secretary said it was his government's view that the fighting should be brought to an end, and an international conference held with guarantees to both sides against attack. He called also for a programme of rehabilitation under United Nations auspices.

    In commenting on Pope Paul VI's address, he suggested that the Assembly could create a peaceful world by encouraging disarmament, setting up viable peacekeeping machinery, settling disputes peaceably and carrying forward the economic and social work of the organisation. Specifically on peacekeeping the Secretary called for the organisation of a peacekeeping fund and for more nations to contribute peacekeeping forces.
