United Nations Security Council Resolution 199, adopted on December 30, 1964, requested that all States refrain (or in some cases cease) from intervening in the domestic affairs of the Congo and appealed for a cease-fire there. After applauding the Organization for African Unity the Council called on States to assist it in achieving its objectives in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

On December 9, 1964, the DR Congo requested a Security Council meeting to discuss interventions in its internal affairs by many countries.[1] Prior to the resolution being passed, a number of African states were invited to discuss the matter. Resolution 199 passed with ten votes, while France abstained from the vote.
