    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ 6: U THANT: "IN MY VIEW, EUROPE IS THE POLITICAL CAPITAL OF THE WORLD. SO THESE TALKS IN HELSINKI REPRESENT A VERY IMPORTANT MILESTONE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY TOWARDS THE GOALS OF PEACE. THIS IS A MOST IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENT SINCE THE SIGNING OF THE...(INDISTINCT) ..TREATY IN MOSCOW IN 1963. SO IN MY VIEW, THE NEWS OF THE HELSINKI TALKS IS THE BEST NEWS FOR A LONG, LONG TIME. FOR FACTORS, I'M OPTIMISTIC, ABOUT THE COMING DECADE.



    U THANT: THE FIRST STEP HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED, TO ADOPT A RESOLUTION OR DECISION. THE SECOND STEP IS IMPLEMENTATION. IN REGARD TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE RESOLUTION OR A DECISION, ON A CRISIS SITUATION, AS THE ONE PREVAILING IN THE MIDDLE EAST, I FEEL VERY STRONGLY THAT THE UNANIMITY OF THE PROMINENT MEMBERS OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL IS ESSENTIAL. WITHOUT THE UNANIMITY OF THE PROMINENT MEMBERS OFF THE SECURITY COUNCIL, NO RESOLUTION OR DECISION OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL WILL BE IMPLEMENTED. YOU WILL RECALL THAT SINCE THE INCEPTION OF THE UNITED NATIONS, IN 1945, CHAPTER SEVEN OF THE CHARTER HAS NEVER BEEN INVOKED. CHAPTER SEVEN REFERS TO MANDATORY ACTIONS INVOLVING THE USE OF FORCE TO OBTAIN CERTAIN OBJECTIVES, DEFINED BY THE SECURITY COUNCIL.
