Armed Israeli aggression against the Iraqi nuclear installations and its grave
consequences for the established international system concerning the peaceful
uses of nuclear energy, the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and
international peace and security
 
The General Assembly,
 
     Having considered the item entitled "Armed Israeli aggression against the
Iraqi nuclear installations and its grave consequences for the established
international system concerning the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, the
non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and international peace and security",
 
     Expressing its deep alarm over the unprecedented Israeli act of
aggression on the Iraqi nuclear installations on 7 June 1981, which created a
grave threat to international peace and security,
 
     Recalling its resolution 33/71 A of 14 December 1978 concerning military
and nuclear collaboration with Israel and its resolution 34/89 of 11 December
1979 on Israeli nuclear armament,
 
     Further recalling Security Council resolution 487 (1981) of 19 June 1981
and noting with concern Israel's refusal to comply with the said resolution,
 
     Taking note of the resolution adopted on 12 June 1981 by the Board of
Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency and of resolution
GC(XXV)/RES/381 adopted on 26 September 1981 by the General Conference of the
Agency, in which the Conference, inter alia, considered that the Israeli act
of aggression constituted an attack against the Agency and its safeguards
regime and decided to suspend the provision of any assistance to Israel,
 
     Fully aware of the fact that Iraq, being a party to the Treaty on the
Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, has subscribed to the International
Atomic Energy Agency safeguards regime, and that the Agency has testified that
these safeguards have been satisfactorily applied,
 
Noting with concern that Israel has refused to adhere to the Treaty on the
Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons and, in spite of repeated calls,
including that of the Security Council, to place its nuclear facilities under
International Atomic Energy Agency safeguards,
 
Alarmed by the increasing information and evidence regarding Israel's
activities aiming at the acquisition and development of nuclear weapons,
 
Gravely concerned over the misuse by Israel, in committing its acts of
aggression against Arab countries, of aircraft and weapons supplied by the
United States of America,
 
Condemning the Israeli threats to repeat such attacks on nuclear installations
if and when it deems it necessary,
 
Affirming the inalienable sovereign right of all States to develop
technological and nuclear programmes for peaceful purposes, in accordance with
the internationally accepted objectives of preventing the proliferation of
nuclear weapons,
 
1.  Strongly condemns Israel for its premeditated and unprecedented act of
aggression in violation of the Charter of the United Nations and the norms of
international conduct, which constitutes a new and dangerous escalation in the
threat to international peace and security;
 
2.  Issues a solemn warning to Israel to cease its threats and the commission
of such armed attacks against nuclear facilities;
 
3.  Reiterates its call to all States to cease forthwith any provision to
Israel of arms and related material of all types which enable it to commit
acts of aggression against other States;
 
4.  Requests the Security Council to investigate Israel's nuclear activities
and the collaboration of other States and parties in those activities;
 
5.  Reiterates its request to the Security Council to institute effective
enforcement action to prevent Israel from further endangering international
peace and security through its acts of aggression and continued policies of
expansion, occupation and annexation;
 
6.  Demands that Israel, in view of its international responsibility for its
act of aggression, pay prompt and adequate compensation for the material
damage and loss of life suffered as a result of the said act;
 
7.  Requests the Secretary-General to keep Member States and the Security
Council informed of progress towards the implementation of the present
resolution and to submit a report to the General Assembly at its
thirty-seventh session;
 
8.  Decides to include in the provisional agenda of its thirty-seventh session
the item entitled "Armed Israeli aggression against the Iraqi nuclear
installations and its grave consequences for the established international
system concerning the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, the non-proliferation
of nuclear weapons and international peace and security".
