Proposal for Restoring Lawful Rights Of Royal Government of Cambodia Included in Agenda

 AT its meetings on October 15 and 16, the General Committee discussed whether it should propose to the U.N. General Assembly the inclusion in the agenda of its current session of the proposal put forward jointly by representatives from Albania, Algeria and China and 28 other countries for the "Restoration of the Lawful Rights of the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia in the United Nations Organization." At the meeting on the 16th, Egypt announced that it had joined the ranks of sponsor nations, thus increasing their number to 32.
   After a nearly four-hour debate at that meeting, the General Committee decided by a majority vote to propose to the U.N. General Assembly the inclusion of the 32-nalion proposal in its agenda. Eleven countries, including Cameroon and China, voted for the proposal; 10 countries, including Denmark and France, abstained; and only representatives from the United States and Fiji voted against it.
   Speaking at the October 16 meeting Chinese Representative Huang Hua pointed out: The puppet Lon Nol group's unlawful usurpation of Cambodia's seat in the United Nations is in complete violation of the U.N. Charter. Back in March 1970, Samdech Sihanouk sent a telegram to U Thant, the then Secretary-General of the United Nations, pointing out that the United Nations must not recognize the Lon Nol group. But over the past three years such a just demand has not been met as a result of the obstruction of some big powers. This is intolerable. In order to uphold international justice and defend the principles of the U.N. Charter, the Chinese delegation maintains that the current session of the General Assembly should discuss and decide upon the restoration of the lawful rights of the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia in the United Nations, and completely end the absurd situation in which Cambodia's seat in the United Nations Is illegally usurped by the representatives of the Lon Nol puppet group.
   The October 17 General Assembly plenary meeting approved the recommendation by the General Committee to include in the agenda of the current General Assembly Session the item "Restoration of the Lawful Rights of the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia in the United Nations Organization" by a vote of 69 in favour and 24 against with 29 abstentions. The meeting also decided that the item should be discussed at the plenary meeting of the Assembly.
   Representatives of some of the countries sponsoring the proposal spoke at the meeting before the vote.
   Reiz Malile, Deputy Foreign Minister of Albania, took the floor first. He expressed the hope that the decision of the General Committee to recommend the inclusion of the item would be fully supported by the General Assembly to rectify the unjust situation now existing. The Cambodian people had expressed their firm desire that the Lon Nol group be expelled from the United Nations and its related organs, he said.
   Malile said that the United States had fomented a coup d'etat in 1970 and installed its puppets in Phnom Penh. All peace-loving people condemned this flagrant aggression and supported the rights of the Cambodian people. The Cambodian people would accept no other authority than the Royal Government of National Union.
   Malile pointed out that the Soviet Union had always been on good terms with the Lon Nol puppet group.
   Algerian Representative Abdellatif Rahal said that the Cambodian people had made it clear that they firmly supported the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia and regarded it as their sole legitimate government. The so-called "Khmer republic" represented no one but the Lon Nol group. He pointed out the United Nations must put an end to a fairy tale that had lasted too long and make a decision to expel the Lon Nol group from the United Nations.
