On November 15, 1967, the U.N. Security Council adopted without objection Resolution 241 (1967) condemning Portugal’s failure to prevent mercenaries from using the territory of Angola under its administration [Page 812] as a base for armed attacks against the Congo. (U.N. Doc. S/RES/241) The resolution was passed in response to a November 3 Congolese appeal to the Council that it take the necessary measures to stop aggression by armed mercenaries based in Angola against the Congo, and to ensure the safety of persons and property in the threatened areas. (U.N. Doc. S/8218) For text of both resolutions, see American Foreign Policy: Current Documents, 1967, pages 250–253.
