While Robert Muller, my husband, was reading the Sunday newspaper, he noted how many articles were discussing China and the Olympics.
Robert mentioned that he was glad that in 1971 when he was the United Nations Director of the Executive Office for Secretary General U Thant, his efforts paved the way for China to become a permanent member the United Nations. On the 25th anniversary of the United Nations at the Waldorf Astoria, in a speech Robert wrote for Secretary General U Thant, U Thant read,
" The government of an ancient and populous nation may soon be taking its place at the United Nations.....I deeply believe this event will signify a fundamental turn for the better in world affairs."
On Monday October 25, 1971, Resolution 2758 passed by an overwhelming margin of 76 to 35, with 17 abstentions.
The following morning, The New York Times, with six different stories on China on the front page reported China burst into the UN. In 1972 Robert met Chinese Premier Chou En -Lai in the Imperial Palace in Peking.
The rest of Robert's story can be found in Robert's biography by Douglas Gillies noted below.
