Editorial Note

At 3 p. m. on August 4, the United Nations Security Council met for its 483rd session. At the outset, the Soviet Representative introduced the following draft resolution (S/1668):

The Security Council,


To consider it necessary, in the course of the discussion of the Korean question, to invite the representative of the People’s Republic of China and also to hear representatives of the Korean people;
To put an end to the hostilities in Korea and at the same time to withdraw foreign troops from Korea.”

Most of the debate then centered on the question of Korean representation at the Security Council, but no vote was taken on the Soviet draft resolution. For the record, see U.N. document S/PV.483.
