UN Security Council Resolution 5 is a resolution adopted by the United Nations Security Council on May 8, 1946, at its 40th session, with ten votes in favor and one abstention (the Soviet Union). It deals with the situation in Iran.


The Security Council took note of a report by the Iranian Government dated 6 May 1946, introduced as a result of Resolution 3 of 4 April 1946, according to which it could not be established whether the complete withdrawal of Soviet troops from the territory of Iran had been completed.

The Security Council postponed future steps on the Iranian issue to enable the Iranian government to verify the complete withdrawal of troops.

A report on the subject was expected from the Iranian Government at the earliest possible date. If this was not possible, a report was to be submitted on 20 May with the information available by then.

The Security Council planned to discuss further steps immediately after receiving the report.
