MS The Minister Speaking:- `I was extremely shocked to learn that open war had finally broken out in Korea, with The attack on the 25th June from North Korea across the 38th parallel As the world is well aware, the regime North of the line is a Communistic regime born under the direct pressure of Russian during the Soviet occupation and South of the line is the republic of Korea, established under the aegis of the United Nations. As the world is well aware, the regime North of the line is a Communist regime born under the direct pressure of Russia and South of the line is the republic of Korea of which I am the Minister in London was established under the aegis of the United Nations. It is obvious that this is no civil war but the concern of all the free Nations. Is this further demonstration of Communist aggression to be permitted to overwhelm a peace loving and free people, or it be checked at the outset. I am quite confident that our patriotic soldiers are already able to counteract the invader but we must have not only the moral but material support of free nations.'
