  • Description

    Unused / unissued footage - dates and locations may be unknown / unclear.

    Chinese Vote and complaint of aggression upon the Republic of Korea at UNO (United Nations Organisation) meeting, Lake Success, United States of America.

    M/S of US Secretary of State Dean Acheson chatting to American delegate Warren Austin, and others in group. Photographers take pictures of them. M/S Carlos Romulo, new President of General Assembly of UNO, banging gavel on desk to call for order; Trygve Lie watches him. Romulo makes welcoming speech and talks passionately of gathering at a desperate hour to save the peace of the world.

    On the subject of the Chinese vote, Sir Benegal Rau of India proposes that Chinese Central Government should represent China in the General Assembly. Shots of Andrei Vyshinsky speaking in Russian. Dr Tingfu Tsiang says he represents the only legal government in China.

    Dean Acheson makes speech, asking the assembly to vote on the motion presented by the Indian delegate at once and vote it down so that the other business of the meeting can be dealt with.

    Romulo gives result of 16 in favour, 23 against, 10 abstentions and says the draft is therefore defeated. He pours himself a glass of water and drinks it before announcing election of Mr Entezam as new Chairman or President (not clear which). Sound becomes faulty as the audience applauds and Romulo gives the rest of the results.
