American UN Security Council delegate, Warren Austen speaking: 'I insist upon the President presiding, if he's going to try to do that and there's a challenge here and the will to obey and it's up to the President to carry out the rules. The President of the Security Council is not a dictator. Our Charter and our system of government within the United Nations and in the Security Council regards the officers of the Security Council as the agents of the members and it is not within the privileges or the powers of the President of the Security Council to change the rules, to make arbitrary new ones, to refuse to obey Rule 30. The point is strictly up to the President to put this question to the vote. A challenge has been made and Rule 30 commands him to put it to the vote, immediately. I insist upon the President or the Security Council by vote, recording the result of the raising of hands truthfully and as it was in fact and not falsely. That's what I require.'
VS of USSR delegate, Jacob Malik replying in Russian. Austen replies: '..corrected his statement to 8 votes. I don't require anything now'. Sir Gladwyn Jebb is sitting with him. MS The Chinese Nationalist delegate, Dr. Tsiang, speaking at length about his Government being the only properly constituted Government in China.
Warren Austen speak: 'I wish to comment and I have a question or two about the provisional agenda circulated for today's meeting. In the first place I note that this provisional agenda does not contain the agenda item, which the Security Council was discussing at its meeting yesterday afternoon and which is unfinished business, required by the rules to be on the agenda - namely, aggression upon the Republic of Korea. It is the item which has commanded the attention of the Council at all the meetings during the past five weeks, which have not been graced by your distinguished presence and should have priority over all other matters. Action to remove threats to the peace is the most solemn obligation of the members of the United Nations. The creators of the United Nations emphasised this obligation by embodying it in Paragraph I of Article I of the Charter. Every peace- loving state must recognise that its paramount concern must be to end the breach of peace in Korea. So long as aggression continues all other issues are secondary. We cannot aggress that there is currently any issue so urgent as the fact that a war is being waged against the United Nations. The United Nations should establish firmly, with clear principle that the question of Chinese representation is not linked in any way with Korean aggression. The firm opposition of the United Nations against the barbaric use of force has given strength and encouragement to all free peoples. We cannot risk the disillusionment that would flow from consideration by the United Nations under this duress of such a matter as representation. We are strongly opposed to any action of this council which might leave the impression that the question of the termination of the aggression from North Korea can be contingent in any way upon the determination of the question.'
