U.N. Discord Binds Africa, Asia Lands By WALTER BIDDER Ch!«f. I, p.T Washlnglcn Bureau WASHINGTON--It's a long way from Outer Mongolia, Asia, to Mauretania, Africa, but for the moment they are bound together by diplomatic chords. This unlikely pair of nations--if indeed Outer Mongolia is really a nation--are and will continue to be in the headlines as peripheral victims--or perhaps victors--of the gigantic struggle now shaping up over admission of Red China to the United Nations. How those two small and remote countries got embroiled in the Red China admission to the UN fight is a long and complicated story, but it does show that not even the herdsmen of faraway Asian vastnesses are safe these days from the world power struggle. OUTER MONGOLIA was (lie first satellite state to be erected by the Soviets. It v o t e d independence f r o m China on Aug. 14, 1945, an independence whicli was recognized by the Red Chinese when they took over in Pei- ping. In 1946, Outer Mongolia applied for membership in the UN, but was turned down, largely on the grounds that it was not truly independent and that it was merely a vassal state of Russia. It tried for admission again in 1955 but was vetoed by Nationalist China. Over the years. Outer Mongolia, which at first was recognized only by Soviet Russia, picked up diplomatic recognition from a number of other countries, such as India and the nations of Southeast Asia. It has not been recognized by the U. S. It's only claim to international fame bei'ore recent events came in 1957 when after his fall from Kremlin grace, Vyacheslav Molotov, former Soviet foreign minister and close friend of Stalin, was appointed ambassador in the Mongolian capital of Ulan Bator--a post which may have been more i m p o r t a n t lhan i t then seemed. THE MATTER of U. S. recognition was revived recently and talks were held on the subject in Moscow between American diplomats and representatives of Outer Mongolia. The State Department is now studying the pros and cons of recognition, a study which brought the cry of "incredible" from Rep. Walter Judd, R., Minn., a vigorous opponent of having anything whatever to do with Outer Mongolia. The reasoning behind the flirtation with Outer Mongolia goes something b'ke this --recognition of Outer Mongolia and its admission to the UN might be enough of a sop to the Communist bloc to stall, a,t least for another year, recognition of Red China and give us a talking point; recognition of Outer Mongolia would allow U. S. diplomatic representatives to be sta tioned in Ulan Bator and give us a knothole which we don't have now for peeking at eastern Siberia and Asia. And-this is where Mauretania comes in--we might do ourselves some good with the new Africa nations by bartering admission of Outer Mongolia for admission of Mau- retania. MAURETANIA, which only attained independence last year, had also applied for UN membership. It got caught, as so many small countries do, in the fight between the East and the West and its application was vetoed by the Soviet Union. Early this year, the question of Mauretania's admission was again raised, this time its bid was coupled with a similar bid by Outer Mongolia. The U. S. turned down this so-called "package" deal and while supporting Mauretania declared it would not vote for Outer Mongolia until the latter country could prove it was truly independent. The package deal fell through, but it is now being revived. So as matters now stand, the U. S. is taking another look at the status of Outer Mongolia, a fact which has already soured relations between the U. S. and Nationalist China, which vehemently opposes any contact with the Communist government of Outer Mongolia.
