Yugoslav 'views on UN seating of Chinese Communists--The US Delegation to the UN transmits the opinion of Yugoslav Security Council representative Bebler that the fundamental issue involved in seating the Chinese Communists in the UN is the independence of China. Bebler feels sure that this question-must be connected with Mao's long stay in Moscow and believes that the longer the Chinese Communists are kept out of the UN, the more the West will be helping the Soviet effort to isolate China from the West and to destroy Chinese independence. 4. Thailand to delay recognition of Bao Dai -US Embassy Bangkok has been informed by Premier Phibul that the Thai Govern- ment intends to delay recognition of the Bao Dai regime in Indochina "for the time being". In support of the Thai deci- sion, Phibul pointed out that considerations favoring recognition are outweighed by Thai desires, in common with those of other Asian peoples, to see nations still considered to be under "colonial domination" achieve "real freedom and independence". The Premier added that the Thai people are not convinced that Bao Dai and his government have yet achieved real freedom, independence, or a large measure of popular support.
