|When hostile North Korean forces crossed the 38th parallel in Korea in June of 1950, the United
Nations Security Council called for an immediate end to hostilities. When its further demand that North Korea
withdraw forces from the southern half of the Korean peninsula fell on deaf ears, the UN Security Council
recommended that members of the United Nations join forces to repel the attack. Twenty-one nations agreed to
contribute arms, money, medical supplies, and/or troops to rid South Korea of the Communist aggressor.

the United Nations Council as a whole. Readers wishing to add more information to these pages should contact
