King Leopold II of Belgium hands over the administration of the Congo to the Belgian parliament 28 November From the beginning of colonialism in the s following the 'scramble for Africa', the Congo had been regarded as Leopold II's personal fiefdom. The United Nations Operation in the Congo (ONUC; French: Opération des Nations Unies au Congo) was a United Nations peacekeeping force in the Republic of the Congo (Léopoldville) that was established after United Nations Security Council Resolution of 14 July The mission was launched to help restore stability to the Congo after it fell into conflict and disorder following independence.
