September 25, 1969
RESOLUTION To set forth as an expression of the sense of the Senate a basic
principle regarding the recognition by the United States of foreign governments. Whereas official statements over the last fifty years concerning the
policy of the United States in granting or withholding recognition of a foreign government have given rise to uncertainty as to whether United States recognition of a foreign government im
plies approval of such a government; and Whereas recognition by the United States of foreign governments
has been interpreted by many Americans and by many foreigners as implying United States approval of those foreign governments;
and Whereas such uncertainty adversely affects the interests of the
United States in its relations with foreign nations: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That it is the sense of the Senate that when the United States recognizes a foreign government and exchanges diplomatic representatives with it, this does not of itself imply that the United States approves of the form, ideology, or policy of that foreign government.
