United Nations Security Council Resolution 188, adopted on April 9, 1964, after a complaint by the Yemen Arab Republic about a British air attack on their territory on March 28, the Council deplored the action at Harib as well as at least 40 other attacks that had occurred in that area. The British Empire (U.K.) had also complained that Yemen had violated airspace of the Federation of South Arabia.[1]

The Council asked the Yemen Arab Republic and the United Kingdom to exercise the maximum restrain in order to avoid future conflict and requested the Secretary-General use his good offices to try to settle the issue with the parties. The resolution was adopted by nine votes to none, with the United Kingdom and the United States abstaining.
