United Nations Security Council Resolution 227
Adopted by the Security Council at its 1311th meeting, (private meeting) on 18 October 1966
The Security Council,
Confirming the consensus approved at its 1301 meeting, on 29 September 1966,
Recalling that, in that consensus, its members welcomed the statement of the Secretary-General on 19 September 1966 that he is ready to consider serving until the end of the present twenty-first session of the General Assembly,
Recommends to the General Assembly, pending consideration by the Security Council of the question of the appointment of the Secretary-General, that it extend the appointment of U Thant as Secretary-General of the United Nations until the end of the twenty-first regular session of the General Assembly.
