Editorial Note

Secretary of State Acheson delivered a major foreign policy address on the evening of November 29 which was broadcast from Washington to the National Council of Churches of Christ in the United States meeting in Cleveland; for the text, see Department of State Bulletin, December 18, 1950, page 962. Regarding Korea, he termed Chinese Communist intervention a premeditated act of brazen aggression, called on the Chinese Communist authorities not to act as the dupes of others in opposing the United Nations, and reiterated that the United States had no special interests in the area apart from the interests of the majority of United Nations members in achieving peace.
