Editorial Note

The First Committee of the United Nations General Assembly held a relatively brief meeting on Monday, January 8, from 10:45 a. m. to 12:35 p. m.; for the record, see United Nations document A/C.1/SR.421. The Committee debated the Korean situation but took no substantive action other than voting to adjourn until January 11 to consider the same question. The vote was taken at the suggestion of the United Kingdom Representative over the objection of the Soviet Delegate who wished the Committee to terminate debate on Korea and move on to another agenda item.
