    TRANSCRIPT: Mr. Fack (SEQ. 3): "The Kingdom of the Netherlands recognised the People's Republic of China many years ago, and maintains diplomatic relations with Peking. In the view of my Government, the Government of Peking is the only legal Government of China. My Government deems it in the interest of the international community of the United Nations and of China itself that the Government of the People's Republic of China occupies the seat in the United Nations forthwith. As my Government recognises the People's Republic of China as the only legal Government of China, the Netherlands delegation cannot associate itself with any proposition which makes mention of some other Government of China."
