United Nations Security Council Resolution 120
Adopted by the Security Council at its 754th meeting, by 10 votes to 1 (United Soviet Socialist Republics), on 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 of 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.
