The order of affair may have seemed indeed disputable as the delegate of North Korea, an observer, was constantly at the heart of the discussion.
“Could I vote?” asked the delegate of North Korea as a motion was not having the sufficient amount of vote to pass nor fail.
To that the committee spend minutes to discuss the motion brought by North Korea, whether or not they could have the right to vote when there is an equality in the votes.
