Cambodian People's Lawful Rights Cannot Be Deprived

Transcribed for www.wengewang.org

 THE 28th Session of the United Nations General Assembly on December 4, 1973 began debate on the draft resolution put forward by Algeria and 32 other member countries, demanding the restoration of the lawful rights of the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia in the United Nations and the expulsion of the representatives of the Lon Nol clique from this international organization and all its related bodies. But as the debate got under way and representatives of many countries were asking for the floor, U.S. imperialism resorted to trickery and machinations, and hastily shoved a resolution through the session by a narrow majority of 52 votes against 50, postponing the debate until the next session of the General Assembly. This is utterly unjustifiable. It only shows that the U.S. Government has a guilty conscience and is afraid of the debate and afraid of the truth.
   The 33-nation draft resolution was included in the agenda of the current session of the U.N. General Assembly with a powerful 69-vote support. The representatives of many countries had spoken out to uphold justice and resolutely demanded an end to the most preposterous phenomenon — the illegal occupation of Cambodia's seat in the United Nations by the Lon Nol clique. The Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia led by Samdech Norodom Sihanouk, Head of Slate of Cambodia, enjoys the warm support of the broad masses of the people at home and extensive recognition abroad. The 4th Summit Conference of Heads of State and Government of Non-Aligned Countries last September clearly pointed out that the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia is the sole legal government of Cambodia and called on all peace-loving and justice-upholding countries to firmly support the Cambodian people's just struggle. During the debate at the current General Assembly session, many representatives of Third World countries pooled their efforts in a resolute struggle to support the Cambodian people's just cause and defend the dignity of the United Nations, demonstrating the strength of militant unity.
   U.S. Representative Tapley Bennett, Jr. turned the facts upside down in his speech on December 5 when he described the restoration of the lawful rights of the R.G.N.U.C. in the United Nations as "supporting great power hegemony in Asia," "interference in the internal affairs of a member state," and so on and so forth. What a grave accusation! But, Mr. Bennett, wouldn't it be more appropriate to have that accusation levelled at U.S. imperialism itself? Everyone knows what the United States has done in Cambodia. Who subverted the legal government of Cambodia by taking advantage of Samdech Sihanouk's absence from the country? Who carried out flagrant armed invasion and wanton bombing of that country? Who up to now is sparing no expense to prop up the tottering traitorous Lon Nol clique? A hundred such questions can be put to the U.S. representative; let him reply to them. If you are really open and aboveboard and are not seeking hegemony in Asia, then you should not obstruct the restoration of the lawful rights of the R.G.N.U.C. in the United Nations, nor would you cling desperately to Lon Nol, a political cadaver.
   The Cambodian people's just struggle to punish the Lon Nol clique is winning ever greater victories. The R.G.N.U.C. has won ever broader world recognition and support. Whatever tricks the United States uses, its attempt to deprive the Cambodian people of their legitimate rights will inevitably fail in the end. The restoration of the lawful lights of the R.G.N.U.C. in the United Nations and the expulsion of the Lon Nol clique from that organization and all its related bodies constitutes a general world trend and popular feeling that no force on earth can obstruct. The United States may have been able to succeed in postponing the debate, but it can never save the Lon Nol clique from its inevitable doom.

("Renmin Ribao" Commentator, December 7)
