  • Description


    U.N. BUILDING; CARADON SPEAKING (SOF)



    LORD CARADON WENT ON TO SAY:



    TRANSCRIPT



    CARADON: "ALL OUR ENERGIES AND ENDEAVOURS MUST NOW BE CONCENTRATED. THIS IS THE ARGUMENT I SHOULD MOST LIKE TO URGE ON THE COUNCIL THIS MORNING -- NOT ON EXCHANGE OF ACCUSATION BUT RATHER ON AN IMMEDIATE EFFORT, AN EFFORT TOGETHER, QUICKLY TO RESTORE THE SITUATION. AS TO THE MOUNTING VIOLATIONS OF THE ARMISTICE AGREEMENT THERE IS I TRUST SOME COMFORT TO BE GAINED FROM THE FACT THAT ALL CONCERNED, I BELIEVE, CLAIM TO ACCEPT THE AGREEMENT. VERY WELL -- LET THE NEED FOR RESPECT FOR THE AGREEMENT BE REAFFIRMED BY THIS COUNCIL. TO THE PROFOUND RELIEF OF THE WORLD THE AGREEMENT WAS REACHED 15 YEARS AGO. IT BROUGHT TO AN END A DESTRUCTIVE WAR WHICH THREATENED EVEN GREATER DANGERS. OUR DUTY IS CLEAR TO REQUIRE ALL CONCERNED TO MAINTAIN AND RESPECT THE AGREEMENT WHICH EVERYONE CLAIMS TO SUPPORT."
