At the United Nations

China Supports Restoration of Lawful Rights of Royal Government of Cambodia in United Nations

   During the debate on the question of Cambodian representation at the December 4 U.N. General Assembly plenary meeting, Huang Hua, Vice-Chairman of the Chinese Delegation, expressed firm support for the restoration of the lawful rights of the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia in the United Nations. Following is the full text of his speech. Subheads are ours. — Ed.

THE representatives oil the traitorous Lon Nol clique JL have been illegally occupying the seat of the Kingdom of Cambodia in the United Nations Organization for three years. Such an abnormal state of affairs should no longer continue. On October 17, 1973, the General Assembly decided at its plenary meeting to include in the agenda of the current session the item entitled "Restoration of the Lawful Rights of the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia in the United Nations/' This is entirely correct. This is the first correct step taken by the General Assembly on the question of Cambodia in the past three years. The Chinese Delegation fully supports this decision and firmly maintains that the General Assembly should adopt a resolution at the current: session to immediately restore the lawful rights in the United Nations of the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia led by Head of State Prince Norodom Sihanouk and to expel the representatives of the Lon Nol group from the seat they illegally occupy in the United Nations and in all its related bodies,

R.G.N.U.C. Is the Sole Lawful Government Of Cambodia

   The Kingdom of Cambodia led by Prince Norodom Sihanouk has been a member state of the United Nations since 1955. It made active efforts for the realization of the purposes and principles of the U.N. Charter. The Royal Government of Cambodia consistently pursued a policy of peace, neutrality and non-alignment. She was dedicated to the defence of state sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, fought against imperialist intervention and subversion, supported the just struggles of all peoples and made positive contributions to the cause of peace in Southeast Asia and the world, thus enjoying high international prestige.
   In March 1970, taking advantage of Prince Sihanouk's absence from the country, the U.S. Government instigated the Lon Nol clique to stage a reactionary coup d'etat and imposed on the Cambodian people the traitorous Lon Nol puppet clique illegally fostered by it, thus undermining the peace, independence and neutrality of Cambodia. Furthermore, in order to support the traitorous Lon Nol clique, the United States and the Saigon authorities flagrantly dispatched troops to invade Cambodia, thus bringing infinite disasters to the Cambodian people. At this critical juncture when the fate of the nation was at stake, Prince Sihanouk, holding aloft the banner of resistance for national salvation, established the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia and called on the people to take up arms against the foreign aggressors. All this has dealt heavy blows at the traitorous Lon Nol clique. In the past three years, united around the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia under the leadership of Head of State Prince Norodom Sihanouk, the Cambodian people have fought valianily and won brilliant victories in their heroic struggle against foreign aggression and for punitive action against, the traitorous Lon Nol clique. The Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia and the Cambodian People's Armed Forces for National Liberation, relying on the people and on their own strength, have now liberated over 90 per cent of the territory, and over five and a half million Cambodian people have now become the true masters of Cambodia, who have taken into their own hands the destiny of the country. From the very inception, the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia has taken root among the people and maintained flesh-and-blood relations with thorn. It has established administrative organs at various levels throughout the vast liberated areas. Since 1970, a deputy prime minister and ten ministers have been leading the war against aggression and for national salvation and other work in the country. Many foreigners who have been to the liberated areas of Cambodia bear witness to the above facts. This has forcefully punctured the shameless lie spread by the Lon Nol clique that the Cambodian people rely on foreign forces in their fight.
   Last spring. head of State of Cambodia Prince Norodom Sihanouk made a successful tour of inspection to the liberated areas in Cambodia, covering over a thousand kilometres, where he was warmly welcomed by the broad masses of the people. Prince Sihanouk made broad contacts with people from various circles in the liberated areas and personally presided over the cabinet meetings. These facts fully show that the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia under the leadership of Head of State of Cambodia Prince Norodom Sihanouk is the sole lawful government of Cambodia and is effectively and fully exercising its administrative power over the vast territory of Cambodia, whereas the traitorous Lon Nol clique was imposed on the Khmer people by U.S. imperialism and its allies and has been illegal from its very inception. Yet elements of the Lon Nol clique and their behind-the-scenes boss have asserted that the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia is a "government in exile." This is indeed the height of absurdity. The Asian, African and Latin American peoples may recall that in order to facilitate diplomatic and international publicity work, the leaders of the Algerian national liberation movement established the Provisional Government of the Republic of Algeria in Tunisia from 1958 to 1962, which won broad international support and assistance. Many justice-upholding countries recognized it as the sole lawful government representing the Algerian people. All anti-fascist countries and people may also recall that the French National Liberation Committee against fascist aggression formed in Algiers by General de Gaulle of France from 1943 to 1944 then had not even established liberated areas in the country, not to speak of liberating Paris, the capital. However, as it was engaged in a just struggle and reflected the French people's desire to safeguard national independence and fight against fascist aggression, all the anti-fascist countries and people at the time recognized it as the sole lawful representative of the French people and regarded the Vichy regime as a downright traitorous puppet clique. A recollection of these historical facts enables us to see even more clearly how far-fetched and untenable it is to assert slanderously that the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia is a so-called "government in exile" and that the R.G.N.U.C. should not be recognized as the lawful government of the Cambodian people because the capital, Phnom Penh, has not yet been liberated. Here it should be pointed out in particular that recently the Prime Minister's Office of the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia issued a communique, announcing the decision that its ministries which had performed their missions abroad would move to the interior part of Cambodia and that with the exception of the Head of State and the Foreign Minister, all its ministers would carry out their duties in the country. This has thoroughly repudiated the above fallacious assertion.
   Last September, Prince Sihanouk representing the Kingdom of Cambodia participated as a full member in the 4th Summit Conference of Non-Aligned Countries held in Algiers. The Political Declaration and Resolution on Cambodia adopted by the conference declare that the only legitimate and legal government of Cambodia is the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia presided over by Head of State Prince Norodom Sihanouk, request all countries that uphold peace and justice to accord formal recognition to her as such and reaffirm their solidarity with the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia in her international struggle, and their firm support within the United Nations and other international organizations. All this eloquently shows to the world that the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia is the sole lawful government of Cambodia enjoying the broad recognition and support of other countries, and that the Cambodian people are enjoying abundant support in a just cause and they have friends all over the world. On November 22, 1973, Prince Sihanouk issued a statement, reaffirming the determination to carry on the struggle without compromise until the realization of the five points contained in the declaration of March 23, 1970 by the Head of State of Cambodia. The Chinese Government and people fully and resolutely support this solemn and just position of the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia.

Traitorous Lon Nol Clique Has Been Illegal From Its Inception
   Let us take a look at the Lon Nol clique that has been entrenched in Phnom Penh. It is but a handful of national scums that have betrayed their motherland and the people and have long been spurned by the broad masses of the Cambodian people. In the areas controlled by the Lon Nol clique, economic conditions are seriously deteriorating, prices are soaring, and the people can hardly live. Its fascist rule has evoked the increasingly strong resistance of the people of various strata. Internally, it is riddled with contradictions and is in the midst of disintegration. In the Lon Nol puppet army, large numbers of soldiers and low-ranking officers have risen in mutiny and crossed over to the liberated zones, turning their guns against the Lon Nol puppet army. In the dry season campaign started last November, the Cambodian people's armed forces launched powerful and fierce offensive attacks against the enemy and won important victories of strategic significance. The traitorous Lon Nol clique is now besieged by the entire Cambodian people and entrenched in Phnom Penh and a few other isolated cities. It can maintain its precarious existence only by relying on the shot in the arm given by imperialism. Its total collapse will not be far off. What is deplorable is that a superpower that professed "full support to the Cambodian patriots in their heroic struggles for the freedom and independence of their motherland" had all along refused to recognize the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia and continued to maintain diplomatic relations with the traitorous Lon Nol clique during the Cambodian people's most difficult time of their struggle against aggression and for national salvation. Now that the Cambodian people are facing a most favourable situation in their struggle against aggression and for national salvation, one may ask: In what position will it place itself?

Deferring Discussions Is an Intrigue

   Some people are attempting to defer to the next session of the General Assembly the question of the restoration of the lawful rights of the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia. It must be pointed out that this is an intrigue, which we firmly oppose. The immediate restoration of the lawful rights of the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia in the United Nations represents the legitimate desire of the entire Cambodian people. All justice-upholding countries should support this demand of the Cambodian people without reservation. Since the General Assembly has already decided to include in the agenda of its current session the restoration of the lawful rights of the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia in the United Nations, what is the reason for asking the General Assembly to defer the discussions and decision on it? To put it bluntly, the idea of so-called deferment is in fact to suit the needs of a superpower. It is evident that as this superpower is in an awkward predicament, it hopes very much that its puppet can continue to usurp the seat of the Kingdom of Cambodia in the United Nations so that it can gain lime for continued flow of assistance to that puppet, who will thus be able to prolong his precarious existence. In our opinion, all proposals for deferring the discussions or voting can only benefit the continued aggression against Cambodia and Interference in its internal affairs by outside forces and endanger peace in Indochina. This is not in the interests of the just cause of the Cambodian people. We must all guard against this.
   Some people even said that to ask the United Nations to discuss the question of Cambodian representation would mean interference in the internal affairs of a country by the United Nations. This is wrong. Everyone knows who has interfered in the internal affairs of Cambodia and who has crossed the vast ocean to carry out armed aggression against Indochina, including Cambodia. And to date such aggression and interference have not ceased. In order truly to defend the principles of the U.N. Charter, no justice-upholding countries should sit idly by and tolerate the wilful intervention and aggression against a sovereign state, or allow a traitorous puppet clique imposed on the Cambodian people by foreign forces to continue to illegally usurp the seat of the Kingdom of Cambodia in the United Nations. Failure to redress such an unjust and unreasonable phenomenon would be tantamount to recognizing imperialist aggression, subversion and intervention against a sovereign state as being legal. Is this not in total violation of the purposes and principles of the U.N. Charter?

Lon Nol Clique Must Be Thrown Out

   History is developing and the people are advancing. We firmly believe that despite the obstacles and traps Of one kind or another some people may place on the restoration of the lawful seat of the Kingdom of Cambodia in the United Nations, a just cause is, after all, irresistible. All attempts at obstructing the restoration of the lawful seat of the R.G.N.U.C. in the United Nations are bound to fail completely in the end. The traitorous Lon Nol clique will certainly be thrown into the garbage heap of history by the Cambodian people and the people of the rest of the world, and the Cambodian people will certainly win complete victory. We hope that all justice-upholding countries will join us in supporting the immediate restoration of the lawful rights of the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia in the United Nations and expel the representatives of the traitorous Lon Nol puppet clique from the scats they have usurped in the United Nations and all the related organizations.
