  • Description

    UN Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjoeld returned to the United Nations Security Council in New York, Aug 21, to give his second report on the progress of Belgian troop evacuation and general situation in the newly independent Congo.

    Patrice Lumumba and Katanga Province premier Tshombe have given Mr Hammarskjoeld a tough time in carrying out his mandate from the Council. After Tshombe had at last agreed to UN troops entering Katanga, Lumumba denounced Hammarskjoeld and demanded his immediate departure because he, Lumumba, expressed lack of confidence in the UN Secretary-General.

    Nine of the eleven members council Aug 22 passed a vote of confidence in the Secretary- General's handling of the situation with the exception of Russia and Poland.
