  • Description

    The United Nations General Assembly met in New York, USA, Oct. 20, to hear a resolution, proposed by Malaya and Ireland, on Tibet, calling for "a respect for the fundamental human rights of the Tibetan people, and for their distinctive cultural and religious life."
    Opening the debate, Malayan delegate, Dato' Nik Ahmed Kamil, appealed for United Nations action.

    For Ireland, Foreign Minister Frank Aiken, called for the restoration of Tibet's national liberties.

    Both Malaya and Ireland insisted that UN must act on the Tibetan problem - even if it meant an aggravation of 'cold war'.

    In reply, Soviet deputy foreign Minister, Vasily V. Kuznetsov, charged Ireland and Malaya with acting on behalf of aggressive and imperialistic circles not interested in easing world tensions.

    Previously 43 nations had voted to debate charges of Communist Chinese suppression of the Tibetan people. Eleven members voted against - with 25 abstentions.
