AFFIRMING that one of the major goals of international diplomacy should be the reduction of tension between the United States and the People's Republic of China; and
NOTING that the United States should initiate steps which may reduce that tension without sacrificing its own security, the Unitarian Universalist Association urges the government of the United States:
- To support the seating of the People's Republic of China in the United Nations;
- To relax restrictions on cultural, economic and nonstrategic trade relations with the People's Republic of China, to offer to negotiate cultural and scientific exchange agreements similar to those in effect with the Soviet Union, and to seek full diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China;
- To seek immediately the inclusion of the People's Republic of China in world disarmament talks.
