Chinese Proposals

In the second phase of the Dumbarton Oaks Conversations the Chinese Government had put forward certain proposals which were agreed to at that time between China, the United Kingdom and the United States. The Government of the U.S.S.R. agreed to join in sponsoring the proposals for presentation to the San Francisco Conference. The proposals, which were submitted to the San Francisco Conference on May 1, 1945, were:“(1) The Charter should provide specifically that adjustment or settlement of international disputes should be achieved with due regard for principles of justice and international law.“(2) The Assembly should be responsible for initiating studies and making recommendations with respect to the development and revision of the rules and principles of international law.(3) The Economic and Social Council should specifically provide for the promotion of educational and other forms of cultural co-operation.”
