United Nations Security Council Resolution 276, adopted on January 30, 1970, after reaffirming previous resolutions and statements, the Council condemned South Africa's continued occupation of Namibia as illegal and decided to establish an ad hoc sub-committee to study the ways and means by which the Council's resolutions could be implemented. The Council requested all states and organizations give the sub-committee all the information and other assistance it may require and further requested the Secretary-General to give every assistance to the sub-committee.

The Council decided to resume consideration of the question of Namibia as soon as the recommendations of the sub-committee have been made available.

The resolution was adopted with 13 votes; France and the United Kingdom abstained.
