MS American UN Delegate, Warren Austen speaking: "to consider the seating of a regime which has officially condemned the efforts of the United Nations to halt aggression in Korea. These and other statements amount to giving assistance and encouragement to the regime against which the United Nations is taking preventive action. To consider at this time the seating of a declared opponent to the United Nations efforts to repulse aggression, to subvert the Great men of the United Nations at the front and would weaken our entire peacemaking endeavour from the wording of the suggested agenda item that the Soviet Union is the only nation interested in the peaceful settlement of the Korean question must be bluntly rejected by the Council. We have become accustomed in this and other organs of the United Nations to agenda items worded primarily with a view to propaganda value. However it is our long standing practice to keep our agenda items very general and simple and we believe we should stick to that practice in the present instance. We shall all be glad to hear what the representative of the Soviet Union may have to say on the Korean question. I am confident that the present wording of the Korean agenda item will not limit the scope of his remarks in any way. I believe it would be a mistake however to change the procedural arrangements under which we have been working on this subject for the past five weeks during his absence. I suggest therefore that the sole item of business on our agenda for this meeting should be the question of the aggression upon the Republic of Korea. I feel that under that item the first order of business on our agenda for this meeting should be the question of the aggression upon the Republic of Korea. I feel that under that item the first order of business would be discussion and decision on the motion which I presented yesterday. Any other proposals submitted by other members of the Council will then be considered according to the rules. Therefore, Mr President, I move that the item following 'adoption of the agenda' should be 'complaint of aggression upon the republic of Korea' and I request the Council to vote separately with regard to the other 2 items. I will vote against approving either of them."
