Cablegram [UNY]341 CANBERRA, 8 November 1946
MOST IMMEDIATE SECRET
Your UN.632.  Minister is disappointed at complete lack of support of Australia by South Africa both at Paris and United Nations in relation to matters where we had every reason to expect active co-operation.
2. It is correct that Minister expressed unwillingness to embarrass Smuts and he will not do so. Without committing ourselves to vote or active support we shall gladly avoid any embarrassment.
