Table 4 records all vetoes cast from 1946 to present.


This listing is by number of proposals vetoed, with the running tally also shown for each permanent member. Included in "proposals" are draft resolutions, votes on the "preliminary question", and votes on amendments. Votes on separate paragraphs when the draft resolution itself was subsequently vetoed are indicated as footnotes to the draft.
