Editorial Note

On November 17, 1947, a proposed reaffirmation of the resolution of December 12, 1946, failed to receive the necessary two-thirds majority of votes in the United Nations General Assembly. The United States voted against the proposed reaffirmation but voted in favor of a resolution, which was adopted, expressing confidence that the Security Council would exercise its responsibilities under the Charter as soon as it considered that the situation in Spain so required (U.N. document A/P.V. 118).
