Editorial Note

The United Nations General Assembly met at 10:45 a. m. on October 7 to conclude its consideration of the Korean question; for the record, see U.N. document A/PV.294. The Assembly, on conclusion of the general debate, considered first the eight-power draft resolution. After voting separately on each paragraph and amendment, the resolution as a whole was approved by a vote of 47 to 5, with 7 abstentions. For the text, see infra. The Assembly then took up the five-power resolution (A/1426). Separate roll-call votes were held on each paragraph which, in each case, reflected a majority opposed to adopting the particular paragraph; as a result, the draft resolution as a whole was not put to a vote. The Assembly then rejected by a vote of 52 to 5, with 3 abstentions, the Soviet draft resolution condemning [Page 904] United State bombing in Korea (A/1427) and rejected by a vote of 55 to 5 the Soviet draft resolution calling for the disbandment of UNCOK (A/1428).
