United Nations Security Council Resolution 12, adopted on December 10, 1946, decided that Greece and Yugoslavia will be invited to participate without the right to vote, that Albania and Bulgaria will be invited to make declarations before the Council and that at a later stage Albania and Bulgaria may be invited to participate without the right to vote.
Paragraphs 1 and 2 were adopted unanimously, while paragraph 3 was adopted "by a majority vote". No vote was taken on the resolution as a whole.
The "Greek Question" was first brought up by the Soviet Union in January 1946 after allegations of interference in Greece's internal affairs by British troops caused tensions with other countries in the region.
