  • Description

    DR MARTIN LUTHER KING, INFLUENTIAL LEADER OF AMERICA'S NEGRO PEOPLE, YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) URGED THE UNITED STATES TO REVERSE ITS POLICY ON ALLOWING THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA INTO THE UNITED NATIONS.

    DOCTOR KING MADE THE SUGGESTION DURING A ONE-HOUR MEETING AT THE UNITED NATIONS WITH THE UNITED STATES AMBASSADOR TO THE U.N., MR ARTHUR GOLDBERG.

    HE TOLD MR GOLDBERG THAT HE HAD MADE THE SUGGESTION AS A MINISTER OF RELIGION INTERESTED IN BRINGING CHRISTIAN ETHICS TO BEAR ON THE WORLD'S SOCIAL EVILS.

    DISCUSSING THE SITUATION IN VIETNAM, DOCTOR KING SAID THE UNITED STATES, TO SHOW ITS WILLINGNESS FOR NEGOTIATIONS TO END THE FIGHTING THERE, SHOULD BE PREPARED TO NEGOTIATE WITH THE NATIONAL LIBERATION ARMY (THE VIET CONG).

    ALSO, THE UNITED STATES SHOULD CEASE BOMBING AREAS OF NORTH VIETNAM AS AN EXPRESSION OF AMERICA'S DETERMINATION TO CREATE THE RIGHT CLIMATE FOR NEGOTIATIONS.

    QUOTING SENATOR FULLBRIGHT'S REMARKS OF TWO YEARS AGO, DR KING SAID THAT THE TIME HAD ARRIVED WHEN AMERICA MIGHT HAVE TO THINK SOME PREVIOUSLY UNTHINKABLE THOUGHTS ABOUT ITS FOREIGN POLICY.
