Editorial Note

On January 12, 1952 the First Committee began consideration of agenda item 67, “the old Soviet item”; see Doc. A/1944, November 8, page 477. This matter had been displaced in the legislative process by “the new Soviet item”, which the Soviet Union had submitted on November 22, 1951 and on which the General Assembly had completed final action on January 11, 1952 (agenda item 69). The documents that [Page 488]follow reconstruct the chronological development of the United States Delegation involvement with agenda item 67.
