President Ford said today that the United States will continue to be a “determined supporter” of the United Nations but “will firmly resist efforts by any group of countries to exploit the machinery of the UN for narrow political interests or for parliamentary manipulation.” The President made that statement at the swearing in ceremonies for Daniel P, Moynihan as the new United States Permanent Representative to the UN, Moynihan, who succeeds Ambassador John Scali in the post, said he concurred fully with the President’s remarks. Ford said that “We have been determined supporters of the UN and we will continue to be so in the future. There is no other course consistent with our advocacy of peace with justice for all humanity.”
