ll. N. Security Council Turns Down
Soviet Bid for Debate on Congo

Statement hy Adlai E. Stevenson

U.S. Representative in the Security Council ^

Before I proceed to my point of order, Mr. Pres-
ident, I want to also welcome the new members.
It is especially agreeable to me to welcome anyone
who has not been here as long as I have. I am
sure they will all make major contributions to the
cause of peace and security, and I hope that I will
also agree with them — and, of course, vice versa.

The Acting Secretarj'-General, Mr. President,
and the United Nations Command, in the judg-
ment of my delegation, are acting vigorously and
skillfully to carry out their mandates. The Gov-
ernment of the Congo, as well as the Secretary-
General and his associates, should, in our
judgment, be left alone to continue their work.
Yet while efforts from many quarters are begin-
ning to produce promising results, the Soviet Un-
ion, which has declined to pay its share of the
costs and otherwise support the United Nations
Operation in the Congo, has also insisted on a
meeting which, so far as I can ascertain, no one
who has supported the United Nations activities
for the benefit of the people and the central
government wants to have.

Even Prime Minister [Cyrille] Adoula has
made his position very clear. lie does not consider
it in the interests of the Congolese themselves to
have a Council meeting at this time, and he regrets
that such action should have been taken by a
friendly government without prior consultation



with the legal goverimient of the Congo and at a
time when he plans a trip to New York to speak
to the General Assembly on the situation in the
Congo. Prime Minister Adoula concludes that
such a meeting can only create confusion and dam-
age to the Congolese people.

And now his views have also been strongly en-
dorsed by the Conference of African States
meeting in Lagos.

Wlien the views of the Congolese Government
became Imown, my delegation had assumed that
the Soviet representative would withdraw his re-
quest for this meeting. In the memorandum re-
questing this meeting, the Soviet representative
implied his purpose was to support the central
government. When the central government sug-
gested this meeting would actually be troublesome,
we would have thought that the Soviet delegate
would have drawn the obvious conclusions. Evi-
dently he has not been disposed to do so. And,
Mr. President, the party whose interests are most
concerned about the Kepublic of the Congo is, of
course, the Republic of the Congo. Its views
should be our guide as to whether its problems
should not be discussed by the Security Council,
and it has made its position very clear.

Accordingly, Mr. President, if there are no
further congratulatory speeches about the new
members, as I gather you have indicated, I hereby
formally move the adjournment of this meeting
under Rule 33. This motion, according to the
rules, is not debatable, and I request that it be put
innnediately to the vote.^



'Made in the Security Council on Jan. 30 (U.S./U.N.
pre.ss release 3910).



' The U.S. motion for adjournment was carried by a
vote of 7 to 2 (Rumania, U.S.S.R.), with 2 abstentions
(Ghana, U.A.R.).

MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT KENNEDY'

To the Congress of the United States:

I am transmitting herewith for the considera-
tion of tlie Congress a suggested bill to promote
the foreign policy of the United States by author-
izing the purchase of United Nations bonds and
tlie appropriation of funds therefor. Tliis bill
would authorize the appropriation of up to $100
million for the purchase of United Nations bonds.
Tlie United Nations is faced with a financial
crisis due largely to extraordinary expenditures
which it incurred in fulfilling the pledges in its
charter to secure peace, progress, and liuman
rights.'^ I regard it as vital to the interests of
our country and to the maintenance of peace that
the capacity of the United Nations to act for peace
not be inhibited by a lack of financial resources.
Some membei-s have failed to pay special as-
sessments levied for peacekeeping operations in
the Middle East and in the Congo, claiming that
these assessments are not binding upon them. The
