    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 2: FAKHREDDINE: "Sir, in the 25 years of its history the organisation has known no paradox so devoid of sense and reason as the representation of China by delegations of the discredited clique which rules the island of Formosa solely through the support of American Imperialism. In all the years of its history the members of this organisation have not lent the advocacy and the collective power of their vote to a cause so patently unjust as that of barring the true representatives of the Chinese People from their council. There has never been such a wilful misrepresentation of the charter as the contention that the People's Republic of China is seeking admission to the UN and should therefore assume and fulfil certain obligations before admission is granted her."

    Background: The Sudanese delegate to the United Nations, Mr. Fakhreddine, told the General Assembly on Tuesday that his country supported the admission of the People's Republic of China to the United Nations.

    He was speaking during the debate concerning the admission of the Peking Government, and the position of the Taiwan Government presently represented at the U.N.

    Mr. Fakhreddine said that the refusal of the United Nations to admit Peking in the past was "patently unjust."
    The vote on the question is expected to be taken on Friday (20 November).
