United Nations Security Council Resolution 330
United Nations Security Council Resolution 330, adopted on March 21, 1973, after citing a number of General Assembly resolutions concerning the exploitation of one state's natural resources by parties of another state, the Council urged states to adopt appropriate measures to impede activities by enterprises which deliberately attempt to coerce Latin American countries. The Resolution then requests states to refrain from using or encouraging the use of any type of coercive measures against states in the region in order to maintain and strengthen peace and security in Latin America.
