The situation in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan

Background

This item was included as an additional item in the agenda of the fifty-ninth session of the General Assembly, in 2004, at the request of Azerbaijan and Turkey (A/59/236 and Add.1).

At its fifty-ninth session, the General Assembly, on the proposal of the sponsor of the item, decided to defer consideration of the item and to include it in the draft agenda of its sixtieth session (decision 59/571) [page 124].

At its sixtieth session, the General Assembly considered the item. The Assembly, seriously concerned by the fires in the affected territories, which had inflicted widespread environmental damage, requested the Chairman-in-Office of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe to provide a report on the matter to States Members of the General Assembly by 30 April 2007 (resolution 60/285).

At its resumed sixty-first session, in September 2007, the General Assembly decided to defer consideration of the item and to include it in the draft agenda of its sixty second session (decision 61/564).
