"The facts, wlu'ch are known to the whole world, show that no aggression has been committed against the United Am- bassador Jacob Malik wrote to the Council. "On the contrary, the VnM H States itself is acting as an ag- gressor in Vietnam." he said. U.S. Ambassador George Rush informed the Council last week that the mining was under the "inherent riaht of self-defence" provided by UN charter. Malik said in his letter that the U.S. action is "seriously complicating the situation in Southeast Asia and is fraughl with dangerous consequences for international peace and se- curity." He also accused the Nixon ad- ministration of violating the principle of freedom of tion embodied in the 1938 Ge- neva conventions on the law of the seas, which the United States signed. China sent UN Secretary-Gen- eral Kurt Waldheim a copy of a statement made by Peking last week reaffirming its backing ol North Vietnam and charging that the United States "violates the freedom of international navigation and trade and wan- tonly tramples upon the charter of the United Nations and inter- national public law."
