UN General Assembly
the main deliberative body of the United Nations. Of the six core parts of the organization, it is the only one that includes all 193 member states. Each country, large or small, has one vote. In addition to adopting nonbinding resolutions on a variety of topics, the General Assembly performs functions such as admitting new members to the United Nations and creating the UN’s budget. The General Assembly adopted many resolutions during the lead-up to the Korean War, including Resolution 195 which recognized the Republic of Korea under Syngman Rhee as Korea’s legitimate government.
