120 (1956). Resolution of 4 November 1956
The Security Council,
Considering that a grave situation has been created by the use of Soviet military forces to suppress the efforts
of the Hungarian people to reassert their rights,
Taking into account that because of the lack of unanimity among its permanent members the Security Council has
been unable to exercise its primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security,
Decides to call an emergency special session of the General Assembly, as provided in General Assembly resolution
377 A (V) of 3 November 1950, in order to make appropriate recommendations concerning the situation in Hungary.
Adopted at the 754th meeting by 10 votes to I (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics).
