Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - February 2, 1966, Mason City, Iowa Claim has for Nd on UNITED NATIONS NY The United States was report ed Wednesday to have lined up enough votes toget a fulldress debate in the UN Security Councilon the war in Viet Nam Diplomatic sources said Jor danian delegate Waleed Sadi got instructions from his gov ernment to vole with the United States in favor of putting the question on the councils agen da That meant the Americans had the nine votes necessary to win on its request that the 15 nation council consider the sit uation in Viet Nam Eight other council members had already announced they would vote for a debate including the Soviet Union and made known that they would vole against Even if the proposal goes up for debate opposition led by the Soviet Union and France virtu ally killed any chance of the United States getting the council to take a hand in Viet Nam peace settlement The bigpower veto does not apply to procedural questions such as putting items on the agenda But it does apply to substantive proposals such as setting up a peuce parley About all the United States can hope for is a chance to air ils peace efforts before the council and try to lay the blame for failure of those efforts at the door of the Communists US Ambassador Arthur J Goldberg has introduced areso lution calling en the council to arrange discussions with inter ested governments on holding a conference that could lead to peace in Viet Nam and all Southeast Asia Soviet reaction to Goldbergs opening appeal Tuesday made plain that the US proposal would run into a Soviet veto even if it mustered the nine af firmative votes needed for adoption Goldberg called on lie council lo help open a new way to peace He defended the resump tion of US bombing of North Viet Nam as the only course open because Hanois refusal to respond to US peace over lures He proposed that repre sentatives of both North and South Viet Nam be invited to lake part in council delibera tions What is at slake here is not the United States position Goldberg said We have brought the matter lo the council What is at slake is How will the world judge the council if it refuses even to con sider that problem which public opinion almost everywhere con siders to be the most serious threat to peace now confronting mankind Soviet Ambassador Nikolai T Fedorenko said that Goldberg was staging a propaganda show which he said made clear that the United States had not yet begun to think of a genuine Viet Nam settlement French Ambassador Roger Seydoux supported Fedorenkos stand He said putting Viet Nam on the council agenda would achieve nothing since Red Chi na Norlh Viet Nam and Soulh Viet Nam of the United Nations Both Red China and North Viet Nam warned that they would regard as null and void any Viet Nam resolution ap proved by the council Hanoi declared that the 1964 Geneva Conference which ended the French Indochina war and divided Viet Nam was the only competent body to
