UN Council seat for Thailand points to Western gain in '85

Thailand was elected to a nonpermanent seat on the Security Council for 1985, beating out Mongolia at the end of the fourth ballot, 106 votes to 49. Observers predicted this election would be one of the few lively moments of the General Assembly, Monitor correspondent Louis Wiznitzer reports.

As a result the composition of the Security Council will be somewhat more pro-Western next year than the current one.

Thailand's election is seen by analysts here as an expression of the growing influence in world affairs of Thailand and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
