United Nations Security Council Resolution 157
Adopted by the Security Council at its 906th meeting, by 8 votes to 2 (Poland, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics), with 1 abstention (France), on 17 September 1960
The Security Council,
Having considered the item on its agenda as contained in document S/Agenda/906, 
Taking into account that the lack of unanimity of its permanent members at the 906th meeting of the Security Council has prevented it from exercising 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.
