October 1955

The article presents information on the appeal by France, when a motion to debate Algeria, a french colony, was brought before the UN Assembly. But the French Government under-estimated the world's concern over developments in North Africa. The Soviet delegation, since the present Assembly convened, has concentrated with great success upon building up new momentum in the anti-colonial struggle, Egypt, the leader of the Arab League, has actively backed the North African rebellion, against France. Among the unhappy supporters of French colonial rule, were Great Britain and the United States.
