Reflections on a Visit... ATTLEE IN PEKING

Straight, Michael
September 1954
New Republic;9/6/54, Vol. 131 Issue 10, p8
This article focuses on British Prime Minister Clement Richard's visit to China which was discussed at the conference held on September 6, 1954, in Manila, Philippines, to launch of South East Asia Treaty Organization. Many Asian nations were invited but few are expected to come. The absent have already voiced strong criticism, of its purpose of isolating and containing Communist China. They are turning instead toward non-aggression pacts with Peking, China. The Communists have long since demonstrated their willingness to talk of trade for purposes of propaganda even when they contemplate no trade. And yet the talk is taken seriously in some British circles. Currently, the U.S. press has uniformly condemned the Labourites for weakening the solidarity of the West and raising the prestige of the Communists. British newspapers, on the contrary, are reporting Attlee's trip with guarded approval.
