Letter dated 17 September 2003 from the Permanent Representative of the Sudan to the United Nations addressed to the President of the General Assembly
In my capacity as Chairman of the Arab Group for the month of September 2003, on behalf of the States members of the League of Arab States, and pursuant to paragraph 8 of General Assembly resolution ES-10/11 of 5 August 2002, adopted at its resumed tenth emergency special session, I have the honour to request the resumption of the tenth emergency special session of the Assembly, in the light of the inability of the Security Council to fulfil its responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security due to the exercise by one of its permanent members of the veto.
(Signed) Elfatih Mohamed Ahmed Erwa
Permanent Representative of the Republic
of the Sudan to the United Nations
Chairman of the Arab Group
