Adopted by 11 votes to none, with 4 abstentions (France, Poland, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) by the Security Council at its 1608th meeting, on 6 December 1971
The Security Council,
Having considered the item on the agenda of its 1606th meeting, as contained in document S/Agenda/1606,
Taking into account that the lack of unanimity of its permanent members at the 1606th hand 1607th meetings of the Security Council has prevented it from exercising its primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security,
Decides to refer the question contained in documents S/Agenda/1606 to the General Assembly at its twenty-sixth session, as provided for in Assembly resolution 377 A (v) of 3 November 1950.
