Request for urgent SecCo meeting on UN Fact-Finding Mission report – Letter from OIC, Syria

    Letter dated 8 October 2009 from the Permanent Representative of the Syrian Arab Republic to the United Nations addressed to the President of the Security Council


  I have the honour to write to you, in your capacity as President of the Security Council for the month of October, in my capacity as Chair of the OIC Group in New York, to express the full support of OIC member States for the request made by the Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya to convene an urgent meeting of the Security Council to consider the report of the United Nations Fact-Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict known as the “Goldstone report”.

  The OIC member States urge the Security Council to shoulder its responsibilities and consider this request with the utmost care and serious consideration, upholding its responsibilities under the Charter to address such matters of imminent impact to the maintenance of international peace and security.

  I would highly appreciate it if the present letter were circulated as a document of the Security Council, in connection with the item entitled “The situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian question”.



(Signed) Bashar Ja’afari


Permanent Representative
