    TRANSCRIPT SEQ 3: ROGERS: "Last night's decision to admit the People's Republic of China as a member of the United Nations of course is consistent with the policy of the United States. President Nixon hopes that this action which will bring into the United Nations representatives of more than 700 million people will result in the reduction of tension in the Pacific area. At the same time the United States deeply regrets the action taken by the United Nations to deprive the Republic of China of representation in that organisation. We think that this precedent which has the effect of expelling 14 million people on Taiwan form representation in the United Nations is a most unfortunate one which will have many adverse affects in the future."
