LS United Nations Assembly. MS Trygve Lie talking. MS delegates looking on.
CU Trygve Lie. He says: (natural sound) "I have decided after lengthy consideration over many months to submit my resignation as Secretary-General of the United Nations. The United Nations has thrown back aggression in Korea. There can be an Armistice if the Soviet Union, the Chinese People's Republic and the North Koreans are sincere in their wish to end the fighting. If they are sincere then the new Secretary-General who is the unanimous choice of the five great powers, the Security Council and of the General Assembly, may be more helpful than I can be".
