Presence of U.S. Troops in Far East Attacked by White Russian; Court Backs Talmadge Position

Occupation Hit, Veto Backed


New York, October 28--Kuzma Kiselev, the White Russian Republic's foreign minister, today attacked the presence of United States troops in China and told the United Nations Assembly that American policy in that country was not calculated to maintain peace in the far east.

Shortly after Kiselev delivered his blistering assault on the United States' far eastern policy, Poland's foreign minister, Wincenty Rzymowski, put the occupation policies in Germany before the Assembly. Rzymowski declared that the people of his country "anxiously watch the chauvinist tendencies of revenge being tolerated in certain parts of Germany."

Both White Russia and Poland vigorously defended the big power vote in the hot Assembly debate in the wake of strong New Zealand charges that the veto system was a "shotgun wedding" forced upon the small nations.

Eleven small countries already are on record in the hot discussion demanding elimination or modification of the veto system.

Kiselev also attacked the presence of British troops in Greece, the Middle East and Indonesia. It was the first strictly Russian address delivered in the course of the general debate which began last Thursday on the major issues facing the delegates of 51 countries.

Kiselev's long speech was regarded as a preview of the line that Vyacheslav Molotov, Russian foreign minister and chief delegate, will take tomorrow in his address to the Assembly. Molotov was in the hall as Kiselev spoke, making his third visit to the assembly since the sessions began last Wednesday.

Russia has pending on the provisional agenda a request that the Assembly take up Russia's proposal calling for information on the number of allied troops in alien non-enemy countries. The Security Council recently refused to admit that request to its agenda and Russia is expected to press it to the fullest before the Assembly.

Kiselev, speaking on the veto, said the unity of the big powers is the basis of the U.N. organization.

Poland's foreign minister said the United Nations is based on the cooperation of the great powers and that this is the reason Poland has opposed and will continue to oppose all attempts at dividing the great powers
