  • Description

    THE QUESTION OF ADMITTING THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA TO THE UNITED NATIONS IS AGAIN UP FOR DEBATE. YESTERDAY (MONDAY) THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY BEGAN DISCUSSING THE ISSUE.

    FOR TAIWAN, MR. CHIEH SAID THAT A VOTE IN FAVOUR OF SEATING CHINA WAS A "VOTE FOR THE VERY DESTRUCTION OF THE UNITED NATIONS". WHILE HE WAS SPEAKING, DELEGATES FROM COMMUNIST AND SEVERAL OTHER COUNTRIES LEFT THE HALL.

    THE UNITED STATES SAID THAT CHINA'S ADMISSION WOULD BE "YIELDING TO UNDISGUISED BLACKMAIL". HE SAID CHINA WAS ATTEMPT TO DICTATE THE CONDITIONS OF ITS SEATING.

    ALBANIA IS ONE OF CHINA'S SPONSORS. THE OTHERS ARE ALGERIA, BURUNDI, CAMBODIA, CONGO (BRAZZAVILLE), CUBA, GHANA, GUINEA, MALI, RUMANIA AND SYRIA. BUT ALBANIA RULED OUT ANY QUESTION OF SEATING BOTH CHINA AND TAIWAN, WHICH HAS HELD THE SEAT SINCE 1948.

    RUSSIA, TOO, SUPPORTED PEKING'S ENTRY. MR. FEDORENKO SAID: "WE MUST, WITHOUT FURTHER DELAY, RESTORE HISTORICAL JUSTICE AND RESTORE THE RIGHTS OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA. WE MUST ALSO EXPEL FROM THIS ORGANISATION THE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE BANKRUPT CHIANG KAI-SHEK CLIQUE."
    THE SPONSORING COUNTRIES ARE EXPECTED TO PRESENT TODAY A DRAFT RESOLUTION CALLING ON THE ASSEMBLY "TO RESTORE THE LAWFUL RIGHTS" OF CHINA. IF THEY ARE TO BE SUCCESSFUL, A TWO-THIRDS' MAJORITY WILL BE NEEDED. THE LAST ATTEMPT TO SEAT CHINA, IN 1963, WAS DEFEATED BY 57 VOTES TO 41, WITH 12 ABSTENTIONS.
