Detailed rules for the cor.imissioi also were ratified. The council did not consider todaj the proposed invitation to the Unitet States for its participation in thi discussion over disarmament. The committee on the admission o new members finally agreed todaj that it is impossible to admit nov the new states carved out of olc Russian territory. The theory of th< committee is that these states wil eventually form part of a new Rus sian confederation, entirely changing their present status.
