    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ 2: MWANGA: "It is to be regretted that the United States has awakened to international realities in the Far East rather late in the day. They did not recognise the Soviet Union after the Bolshevik revolution until after sixteen years. It is now twenty two years since the establishment of the People's Republic of China, and Washington still has not recognised Peking. It is indeed gratifying to see the efforts, which Zambia and many other countries have been involved in to make the United Nations a truly universal body, gathering strength. Let it be stated that there can be no true and lasting solution to any of the major problems of this contemporary world without the full and effective participation of the People's Republic of China".
