|Security Council composition|
United Nations Security Council Resolution 314, adopted on February 28, 1972, concerned that certain states were not complying with resolution 253, the Council decided that the sanctions against Southern Rhodesia set out in 253 would remain fully in force. It also urged all states to implement fully resolution 253 and declared that any legislation passed or act taken by any state with a view to permitting the importation of any commodity from Southern Rhodesia falling into the scope of 253 (chrome ore was specifically mentioned) would undermine the sanctions and be contrary to the state's obligations under the United Nations Charter.

The resolution was adopted by 13 votes to none, with two abstentions from the United Kingdom and United States.
