About this Item

This ABC news reporter entered diplomacy when he acted as an intermediary during the Cuban Missile Crisis, helping divert a disaster; in 1971 President Nixon named him his foreign affairs advisor; from 1973 to 1975 he served as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Signed Printed Document, 8" X 10," 7pp (recto and verso; 4 leaves), New York, NY, 1974 December 6. Near fine. Stapled at upper left, as issued; two faint horizontal original folds. Standard mimeographed press release issued by the "United States Delegation to the General Assembly," titled "Statement by Ambassador John Scali. on Strengthening the Role of the United Nations." In a blank area at top center of the first page, the ambassador boldly pens "with best wishes / from / John Scali" in black fineline. In this speech, Scali deplores "the growing tendency of this Organization to adopt one-sided, unrealistic resolutions that cannot be implemented" as well as "a new threat -- an arbitrary disregard of United Nations Rules, even of its Charter." He goes on to cite numerous instances of both, closing with: ".we must now renew our commitment to the central principles of tolerance and harmony upon which the United Nations charter was built. We must redouble our efforts to use this Organization as the world's ultimate instrument for compromise and negotiation. I pledge my nation to these efforts." Most unusual in this form.
