officials have told for eign diplomats that their coun try will not veto the applica tion of Communist Outer Mon golia for United Nations membership The Nationalists still oppose the admission of the Soviet backed Asian state but have decided after much pressure and persuasion that a veto could cost the Nationalists their own UN seat sources said The Outer Mongolia applica tion is linked to that of the African nation of Mauritania A Nationalist veto of Outer Mongolia would cause a Soviet veto of Mauritania The result could be African resentment against China and the conse quent support of the 12nation Brazzaville group of African nations for Communist China In the United Nations Western circles welcomed the reported Nationalist decision They were confident the action would prevent Commuhiist China from gaining admittance to the United Nations for at least another year It was presumed in the United Nations that Chiang KaiSheks government would abstainfrom voting on Outer
