The UN still falters

January 1951
America;1/20/1951, Vol. 84 Issue 16, p451
The author criticizes the reluctance of several members of the United Nations (UN) to condemn Communist China's military intervention in Korea. Contrary to the U.S. delegation's recommendation on January 5, 1951 for nations to sever diplomatic and economic ties with China, some UN delegations believe that China may still accept a ceasefire proposal, says the author. He points out that China had already disregarded previous UN overtures, thus he urges the UN to take decisive action in order to neutralize Chinese aggression.
