"In Africa, the United Nations was assisting the former Italian colonies of Libya, Eritrea and Somaliland to achieve independence. Through the Trusteeship System and the Charter provisions relating to other Non-Self-Governing Territories, the United Nations
offered the Administering Powers and the peoples under their jurisdiction the best opportunity for peaceful progress towards co-operation for mutual welfare.

By resolution 289 A (IV), adopted at the fourth session on 17 November 1950, the General Assembly, among other things, established the United Nations Commission for Eritrea to ascertain more fully the wishes of the inhabitants of Eritrea and the means of promoting their future welfare.
The Commission was to prepare a report and to submit proposals, so that the matter might be considered by the General Assembly at its fifth session. The Interim Committee of the General Assembly was asked to consider the Commission's report and to submit its conclusions to the fifth session of the Assembly.
