That's what I require'.

    MS Malik speaking in Russian. VS People in Corridor. MS Sir Gladwyn Jebb, British delegate speaking: 'The flagrant disregard of the North Korean authorities for the will of the United Nations is the one thing which has prevented and still prevents a peaceful settlement of this question. However great the attempts may be to assert the contrary on ideological and propaganda grounds the face is that the North Korean authorities attacked the republic of Korea and that the situation must be restored in accordance with the Charter. No other issue must be allowed to cloud this cardinal fact and that is why I sir shall continue to insist that the complaint of aggression against the republic of Korea be placed as the first substantive item on our agenda.' (Pan off from Jebb to Malik listening and making notes.)
    LS meeting. MS Warren Austen speaking. 'As I stated yesterday the United States cannot agree that the question of Chinese representation can take precedence over the fact of armed aggression. So long as men are dying on the battlefield in the defence of the United Nations, this Council will not wish to cheapen their suffering or sully their heroism by seeming to engage in the consideration of deals.' (Dubbing shot of GV. assembly). LS meeting. Selected Originals exist for this item - see other records.
