In 1951, concerned at the lack of progress of the campaign against apartheid at the United Nations (UN), Indian delegates discussed strategies to put the question before the Security Council in order to produce a more effective international policy to end the racist regime in South Africa. Efforts to debate the issue before the highest level of the UN would not succeed until 1960 when the Council for the first time officially denounced the racist policies of the South African government.
