10.  Noting that every effort should be made to end foreign occupation and policies of aggression, he said that Israel continued to occupy the Palestinian territory and the Syrian Golan, draining natural resources. Projects were being implemented with assistance from United States companies contravening Security Council resolution 497 (1981) and General Assembly resolution 66/225 that reaffirmed the inalienable rights of the population of the occupied Syrian Golan over the region’s natural resources. The Committee should highlight the adverse economic and environmental impacts of foreign occupation and its detrimental effect on the efforts of developing countries to confront the global economic and financial crises.

His country reaffirmed the sovereignty of the Palestinian people in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, and of the Arab population in the occupied Syrian Golan over their natural resources and called on Israel to comply immediately with its obligations under international law.
