The mailing says enclosed is a memorandum on the South West Africa debate which has just begun in the Special Session of the United Nations General Assembly; this issue is a critical importance to the future of the United Nations; as the memorandum points out, if the United Nations is impotent to implement its own resolution, smaller countries will become increasingly cynical about the worth of the international organization. The mailing says it is not known yet what the precise nature of a resolution submitted to the General Assembly might be; but it should meet certain conditions listed toward the end of our memo. The mailing says we hope you will take what action necessary to press the United States for a vigorous position in implementing United Nations responsibility clearly outlined in the resolution passed by the General Assembly last October.
