  • Description

    The People's Republic of China came a step nearer to an eventual seat in the United Nations when the United States dropped total opposition to entry by the Peking Government.

    The new attitude of the United States was expressed in the General Assembly yesterday (Thursday 12 November) during the annual debate on Chinese representation.

    The United States representative, Mr. Christopher Phillips, said his Government was as interested as any to see the People's Republic of China play a constructive role among the family of nations. But he rejected demands for the expulsion of Generalissimo Chang Kai-Shek's regime.

    Some members of the United Nations-notably Algeria, Albania, Cuba, Pakistan, Tanzania and Zambia-are attempting to expel this regime because not doing so would probably lead to the People's Republic refusing to accept a seat. The Peking regime does not accept the concept of two Chinas.

    The representative of Taiwan, Mr. Tao Ming Wei, told the Assembly that the principles of the United Nations Charter and those of Chairman Mao were diametrically opposed to each other.

    A vote on the issue is expected next week.
