  As set forth in the statements, etc., cited above, the general effort
  of United States policy at the United Nations in 1951 was to formulate
  an identity of United States and United Nations principles in the
  establishment of a peaceful world. The specific thrust of United States
  policy was to organize a collective security system to resist aggres-
  sion and to counteract spurious Soviet peace propaganda at the
  United Nations. More often than not, the war in Korea was the occa-
  sion for these official United States pronouncements. President Tru-
  man on July 26, 1951 described the United States record at the United
  Nations as one "of decision and action in the face of danger and,
at
  the same time, a record of increasing efforts to promote human
  progress."
