United Nations Security Council Resolution 183, adopted on December 11, 1963, after the Secretary-General established a failed meeting between representatives of Portugal and those of African States, the Council again deprecated Portugal's failure to free its colonies though they said they would take Portugal's granting amnesty to all political prisoners as a sign of good faith.

The resolution was adopted with 10 votes and one abstention from France.
