                         Israeli nuclear armament
 
        The General Assembly,
 
        Recalling its previous resolutions on Israeli nuclear armament,
 
        Recalling resolution 38/64 of 15 December 1983, in which, inter alia,
    it called upon all countries of the Middle East, pending the establishment
    of a nuclear-weapon-free zone in the Middle East, to agree to place all
    their nuclear activities under International Atomic Energy Agency
    safeguards, and invited those countries also, pending the establishment of
    a nuclear-weapon-free zone in the region, to declare their support for
    establishing such a zone and to deposit those declarations with the
    Security Council,
 
        Considering that the Israeli statements contained in a letter dated
    12 July 1984 continue to disregard the safeguards system of the
    International Atomic Energy Agency,
 
        Recalling further Security Council resolution 487 (1981) of
    19 June 1981 in which, inter alia, the Council called upon Israel urgently
    to place its nuclear facilities under International Atomic Energy Agency
    safeguards,
 
        Noting with concern Israel's persistent refusal to commit itself not
    to manufacture or acquire nuclear weapons, despite repeated calls by the
    General Assembly, the Security Council and the International Atomic Energy
    Agency, and to place its nuclear facilities under Agency safeguards,
 
        Conscious of the grave consequences which endanger international peace
    and security as a result of Israel's development and acquisition of
    nuclear weapons and Israel's collaboration with South Africa to develop
    nuclear weapons and their delivery systems,
 
        Recalling its repeated condemnation of nuclear collaboration between
    Israel and South Africa,
 
        Taking note of the report of the Secretary-General on Israeli nuclear
    armament,
 
        1.    Condemns Israel's continued refusal to implement Security
        Council resolution 487 (1981), unanimously adopted by the Council on
        19 June 1981, and its refusal to renounce any possession of nuclear
        weapons;
 
        2.    Requests the Security Council to take urgent and effective
        measures to ensure that Israel complies with the resolution and places
        all its nuclear facilities under International Atomic Energy Agency
        safeguards;
 
        3.    Requests again the Security Council to investigate Israel's
        nuclear activities and the collaboration of other States, parties and
        institutions in these activities;
 
        4.    Reiterates its request to the International Atomic Energy Agency
        to suspend any scientific co-operation with Israel which could
        contribute to Israel's nuclear capabilities;
 
        5.    Reiterates further its condemnation of the Israeli threat, in
        violation of the Charter of the United Nations, to repeat its armed
        attack on peaceful facilities in Iraq and in other countries;
 
        6.    Reaffirms its condemnation of the continuing nuclear
        collaboration between Israel and South Africa;
 
        7.    Requests the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research,
        in co-operation with the Department for Disarmament Affairs of the
        Secretariat and in consultation with the League of Arab States and the
        Organization of African Unity, to prepare a report providing data and
        other relevant information relating to Israeli Nuclear Armament and
        further nuclear developments taking into account, inter alia, the
        report of the Secretary-General on Israeli nuclear armament, and to
        submit it to the General Assembly at its fortieth session;
 
        8.    Requests the Secretary-General to provide the necessary support
        to the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research to enable it
        to carry out the task entrusted to it under the present resolution and
        for the Institute to submit a report to the General Assembly at its
        fortieth session;
 
        9.    Decides to include in the provisional agenda of its fortieth
        session the item entitled "Israeli nuclear armament".
