    NEWSMEN SURROUNDING SHEIKH MUJIBUR: MUJIBUR SPEAKING (SOUND): RUINS OF VILLAGE.



    (MUJIBUR) The most urgent task is that of reconstructing and restructuring the economy....the economy must be restored....food clothing shelter must be provided. Educational institutions must once again function and education must be made accessible to all sections of the people. Relief and rehabilitation has to proceed on an emergency basis. I appeal to all States, to the freedom-loving people of the world and to international humanitarian organisations generously to come to our assistance in all spheres, including assistance in maintaining supply of essential commodities which are urgently required. I expect Mr. Bhutto to accept the reality of the independent sovereign Peoples Republic of Bangladesh. I expect that the Peoples Republic of China, which itself had attained liberation by armed struggles against Warlords, feudal and colonial exploiters should recognise the heroic success of our national liberation struggle. I hope the Peoples Republic of China will now come forward to recognise the reality of the independent sovereign Peoples Republic of recognise the reality of the independent sovereign Peoples Republic of Bangladesh, so that a basis may be established for mutual co-operation.
