    TRANSCRIPT SEQ 2: TAIWAN AMBASSADOR:



    "THE REJECTION OF THE RESOLUTION IS A FLAGRANT VIOLATION OF THE CHARTER GOVERNING THE EXPULSION OF MEMBER STATES. IN VIEW OF THE FRENZY AND THE IRRATIONAL MANNERS THAT HAS BEEN EXPENDED IN THIS HALL, THE DELEGATION OF THE REPUBLIC OF CHINA HAS NOW DECIDED NOT TO TAKE PART TO ANY FURTHER PROCEEDINGS OF THIS GENERAL ASSEMBLY."



    SEQ 6: ALBANIAN AMBASSADOR'S TRANSLATOR:



    "WE HAVE RESTORED THE LAWFUL RIGHTS OF THE GLORIOUS CHINESE PEOPLE AND THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA, IN THE UNITED NATIONS...RIGHTS WHICH HAVE BEEN UNJUSTLY DENIED THEM FOR 20 YEARS AS A RESULT...A DIRECT RESULT OF THE POLICIES OF THE DICTATE OF THE AMERICAN IMPERIALISTS. THIS DECISION, THIS HISTORIC DECISION, WILL REMAIN ENGRAVED IN THE ANNALS OF THE UNITED NATIONS AS A GREAT VICTORY OF ALL PEOPLES OF THE WORLD AND MEMBER STATES WHO ARE PEACE-LOVING, AND AT THE SAME TIME A GREAT DEFEAT FOR AMERICA. TODAY'S VOTE HAS DEMONSTRATED THE GREAT...THE ROLE THAT THE WORLD RECOGNISES TO THE PEOPLE OF CHINA, ITS COLOSSAL STRENGTH ON THE SIDE OF THE FIGHT FOR PEOPLE'S FREEDOM...THE WILL OF ALL THE PEOPLES, PEACE-LOVING PEOPLES, AND THIS VOTE HAS CONFIRMED THE GREAT TRUTH--THE UNITED NATIONS NEEDS CHINA. THAT WITHOUT ITS CONTRIBUTION, WHICH IS ESSENTIAL, IT IS UNABLE TO RESOLVE ANY OF THE IMPORTANT PROBLEMS CONFRONTING IT."



    TAIWAN AMBASSADOR:



    "I HAVEN'T GOT ANYTHING TO SAY....IT IS A PART OF THE EVENING...I WANT TO GO HOME NOW....NO QUESTIONS....I DON'T WANT ANY QUESTIONS...GO AWAY...GO AWAY....GO AWAY....PLEASE...."



    SEQ 9: BUSH:



    "WHEN I WALKED OUT SIDE BY SIDE WITH THE MINISTER FROM THE REPUBLIC OF CHINA I CAN TELL YOU THAT I KNEW THEN, JUST AS I'VE KNOWN ALL ALONG, THAT THIS WAS NOT THE THING THAT THE UNITED NATIONS SHOULD DO. NOW, OUR RESOLUTION....THE OTHERS CLEARLY BOTH AFFIRM REPRESENTATION FOR THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC. WE CROSSED THAT BRIDGE. BUT THE UNITED NATIONS TODAY CROSSED A VERY DANGEROUS BRIDGE, AND THAT'S THE QUESTION OF EXPULSION. AND TIME WILL TELL. MY COUNTRY TOOK A GOOD DEAL OF ABUSE IN THERE BY SOME INTEMPERATE PEOPLE AND THIS IS FINE...THERE WAS LOTS OF VERY NOBLE OPPOSITION TO OUR POSITION. BUT IN CALM REFLECTION, I THINK WE'RE GOING TO RECOGNISE THAT THERE'S BEEN A VERY SERIOUS MISTAKE. IT'S VERY FASHIONABLE IN THERE TO LORD IT OVER THE UNITED STATES BUT MY POINT ISN'T THAT; ISN'T THE FACT THAT WE LOST. MY POINT IS THAT THE UNITED NATIONS LOST."
