The World

The Senate approved a resolution stating that former U.N. Secretary General Kurt Waldheim should be denied his annual U.N. pension of $81,650 because of disclosures about his service as a Nazi intelligence officer during World War II. The non-binding resolution urges President Reagan to instruct the permanent U.S. representative to the United Nations to object to the annual payment to the Austrian president-elect. Waldheim has received the payment since retiring as secretary general in 1982.
