Israel Reported Favoring Admission of Communist China to U. N.

Although the Israel delegation voted this week for the American motion at the United Nations General Assembly that there should be no change in the Chinese representation at the UN “during the current year”–which precludes the admission of Communist China during the Assembly’s session–Israel is not opposed to the seating of Communist China in the UN.

Well-informed sources today indicated that Israel will be among the nations voting for the admission of Communist China to UN membership if and when the issue is taken to a vote in the Assembly. In this respect Israel will follow the British stand, which is at adds with the position of United States opposing the admission of Red China to the world organization.
