get citationThe memorandum notes the Minister's intent to recognize North Korea no later than year's end, if possible. It agrees with the suggestion made in a departmental study that confidential consultations with those countries most involved would be good to get rid of UNCURK and the attached UN Command. It does note that (1) recognition should be postponed until some kind of basic agreement between the Koreas has come about; (2) getting rid of UN Command would create a difficult situation for those American troops still present, which should be addressed."Internal Memorandum of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 'The UN and North Korea'," July 04, 1973, History and Public Policy Program Digital Archive, National Archives, The Hague, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, access number 2.05.313, inventory number 11769.
