  • Description

    North and South Vietnamese observers at the United Nations on Tuesday 912 August) criticised the United States for using its veto to stop the two countries entering the world body.

    They vowed to carry their campaign to the General Assembly, and predicted that United States policy on their entry to the U.N. would fail.

    The Ambassadors made their comments at a news conference the day after the U.S has used its eight and ninth vetoes to oppose a resolution allowing the countries to become members of the U.N.

    The South Vietnamese delegate, Mr. Dinh Ba Thi, Said the U.S. was in an "embarrassing and completely isolated position."
    "It is our conviction that, with the support of the great majority of the countries and of world public opinion, the veto power sooner or later will fail", he said.

    Next month's session of the General Assembly is expected to ask the Security Council to reconsider its decision.

    Reuters have reported that a high U.S. source has speculated that while the Assembly cannot confer membership, it might give the countries permanent non-voting seats, as given to the Palestine Liberation Organisation during last year's session.

    The U.S. cast the vatoes in retaliation for the Council's refusal to consider an application last week by South Korea for membership of the U.N.
