The death Monday of Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold in an air crash in Northern Rhodesia has produced a critical situation because of Soviet opposition to naming any single person to fill his post. The one action in the last few days which has strengthened the peace is the determination to stop this further spread of weapons in this hemisphere. In throwing their armed forces around Cuba and upon the territory of Cuba itself, and in having declared their intention to use force when they deem that appropriate, the United States is committing an act of uncovered aggression. Even after the first hard intelligence reached Washington concerning the change in the character of Soviet military assistance to Cuba, the President of the United States responded by directing an intensification of surveillance. There is no proof, no evidence. Stevenson, his American counterpart, rose to challenge Mr.
In his 45-year career in the Foreign Ministry, Mr. And if you are ready to try, we are. There are four launcher-erector mechanisms for placing these trailers in erect firing position. In stating its intention to draw into the implementation of its aggressive actions against Cuba the Organization of American States—to which it is already dictating the effecting of collective sanctions against Cuba—the United States is openly violating the prerogatives of the Security Council which alone can offer powers for the carrying out of any enforcement measures. All right sir, let me ask you one simple question. Nevertheless, the Soviet Union attempted to draft Thant at the first consultation of the permanent members on 6 December 1971.
Finally, let me say that no twisting of logic, no distortion of words can disguise the plain, the obvious, the compelling common sense conclusion that the installation of nuclear weapons by stealth weapons of mass destruction in Cuba poses a dangerous threat to the peace, a threat which contravenes Article 2, paragraph 4, 3 and a threat which the American Republics are entitled to meet as they have done with appropriate regional defensive measures. The Soviet delegation recalls also the statement of the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Ambassador: We do have the evidence. Both Chairman Khrushchev in his letter to and in his remarks to this Council argued that this threat to the peace had been caused not by the Soviet Union and Cuba but by the United States. You will have your answer in due course. One other point I'd like to make, Mr. I shall not detain you with any detailed discussion of the Soviet and the Cuban responses to our complaint.
That proved the fact that the country lying was the Soviet Union, not the United States. Retrieved Jun 24, 2007, from. On 30 November 1962, the Security Council met in secret session and adopted a communiqué recommending that Thant be appointed to a term ending 3 November 1966. Soviet ambassador met with U. In 1947-1955 and again in 1956-1965, he was Deputy of the. Ambassador that he could only reverse his decision if the Council gave him something to.
Zorin was elected to the Central Committee in 1956 as a member and held full membership from 1961 to 1971. To support this build-up, to operate these advanced weapons systems, the Soviet Union has sent a large number of military personnel to Cuba -- a force now amounting to several thousand men. Now, after the effecting, by the United States, of the recent and far-reaching aggressive actions against Cuba, it is clearly obvious how cynical was the attitude of the United States towards these and many other invocations and appeals to adhere, in its policy in the international arena and in relations with Cuba, to the lofty principles of the Charter of the United Nations. In 1955-1956, Zorin was the first Soviet ambassador to the. Zorin, a top Foreign Ministry official who served as the Soviet representative to the United Nations in the early 1960's, has died after a long illness, the Comunist Party newspaper Pravda said today.
The very priority of the actions of the United States Government demonstrates this. Millions of Americans were glued to their television sets on that fateful day in October 1962 as Adlai Stevenson, the U. When Adlai walked into the Council, Zorin welcomed him and then pointed out that the world was asking questions about whether accusations by the United States about missiles in Cuba were true or not. The facts are that there are missiles comparable to these being placed in Cuba with the forces of only three of our allies. As was stated on 3 September 1962 in the joint Soviet-Cuban communiqué on the visit to the Soviet Union of a Cuban delegation composed of Mr. Zorin is the son of a teacher.
The fact is that the two being enemies at one point, they still stand and are remembered as great figures of diplomacy. Within two weeks, of Burma emerged as the only candidate who was acceptable to both the Soviet Union and the United States. But he then surprised many during a first encounter with his charm and affability. He was 84 years old. We immediately put into process the political machinery that we pray will achieve a solution of this grave crisis. Instead, we heard that they had suddenly become defensive weapons.
No State, however powerful it may be, has any right at all to define or determine what form of armaments may be required by another State for its defense. And perhaps it would be instructive to the world to see how a Soviet official -- how far he would go in perfidy. Zorin, refused to answer the questions asked by Mr. The Arab countries were also willing to accept Thant, even though Burma had diplomatic relations with Israel. And I'm also prepared to present the evidence in this room. Then as now, international public opinion was quite skeptical about U.
In contrast, by the time of the missile crisis, bombs twenty times more powerful were three feet long and. By this arbitrary, piratical act, the United States has placed under threat the shipping of many countries of the world, including shipping of its allies who do not agree with this reckless and dangerous policy with respect to Cuba. The purpose of the United States is in fact to place before the Security Council the fait accompli of United States aggression. Khrushchev had not instructed Zorin to change his position of not being truthful to the Security Council about the missiles in Cuba. There are those who say that conceding the fact that the Soviet Union has installed these offensive missiles in Cuba, conceding the fact that this constitutes a grave threat to the peace of the world -- Why was it necessary for the nations of the Western hemisphere to act with such speed? Zorin, principled Communist, tireless worker, tactful and modest man, will always be kept in our hearts,'' the Pravda obituary said.
