Assembly Work Programme

The General Assembly was expected to take  action this afternoon on a number of draft resolutions and draft  decisions relating to reports of its Fourth Committee (Special Political and Decolonization).

Among the topics  addressed in those reports are:  effects of atomic radiation; international cooperation in  the peaceful uses of outer space; the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA); the report of the  Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Palestinian People and Other Arabs of the Occupied Territories; comprehensive review of peacekeeping operations; and questions relating to information.

/…

Of the seven drafts on UNRWA  (document A/54/575), the first, on assistance to Palestine refugees, would have the General Assembly reiterate its deep concern regarding  the Agency's persisting critical financial situation as outlined in the report of the Commissioner-General.  It would note with profound concern that the continuing shortfall  in the Agency's finances has a significant negative influence on the living conditions of the Palestine refugees most in need and that it therefore has possible consequences for  the peace process.  The Assembly would call upon all donors, as a matter of urgency, to make the most generous efforts possible to meet UNRWA's anticipated needs, including the remaining costs of moving the headquarters to Gaza, and encourage contributing governments   to contribute regularly and to consider increasing their contributions.

The second draft, on the Working Group on the Financing of UNRWA, the Assembly would  request the Working  Group to continue its efforts, in cooperation with the Secretary- General and the Commissioner-General, to find a solution to the Agency's financial situation.  It would welcome  the new, unified  budget structure for the 2000-2001 biennium  2000-2001, which can contribute significantly to improved budgetary transparency.

Under the terms of a text relating to persons displaced as a result of the June 1967 and subsequent hostilities, the Assembly would reaffirm the right of all persons displaced as a result of those hostilities to  return to their homes or former places of residence  in the territories occupied by Israel since 1967.  It  would express the hope for an accelerated return of displaced  people through the mechanism agreed upon by the parties  in article XII of the 1993 Declaration of Principles on Interim Self-Government Arrangements.

By a text on offers by Member States of grants and  scholarships for higher  education, including  vocational training, for Palestine refugees, the Assembly would strongly appeal to all States, specialized agencies and non-governmental  organizations  to  augment the special allocations  for grants and scholarships  to Palestine refugees, in  addition to their contributions to the regular budget of the UNRWA.  It would also request the Agency to act as the recipient and trustee for those special allocations and to award them to qualified Palestine refugee candidates.

According to a draft on operations of UNRWA, the Assembly would call upon Israel  to  accept the de jure applicability of the Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian  Persons in Time of War, of 12 August 1949, and to abide scrupulously by its  provisions.  It would also call upon Israel  to abide by Articles 100, 104, and 105 of the  United Nations Charter and the Convention on the  Privileges and Immunities of the United Nations with regard to the safety of UNRWA personnel and the protection of its institutions and the safeguarding of the security of its facilities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including Jerusalem.  In addition, the Assembly would  call once again upon the Government of Israel to compensate the Agency for damages to its property and facilities resulting from actions by the Israeli side.

According to a text on Palestine  refugees' properties and their revenues, the Assembly  would reaffirm that the  Palestinian refugees  are entitled to their property and to income derived therefrom, in conformity with the principles of justice and equity.  It  would urge the Palestinian and Israeli sides, as agreed  between them, to deal with the important issue  ofthe refugees' properties and their revenues in  the framework of  the final status negotiations of the Middle East peace process.

A draft on a University of Jerusalem "Al Quds" for Palestine refugees would have the Assembly emphasize the need to strengthen the educational system in  the Palestinian territory occupied  by Israel since 5 June 1967, including Jerusalem, and specifically the need for the establishment of the proposed university.  The  Assembly would also call once more upon Israel to remove  the hindrances that it has put in the way of establishing the University of Jerusalem "Al Quds".

By one of five draft resolutions in the report of the Special  Committee on Israeli  Practices (document A/54/576), the General Assembly would commend that body for its efforts  and its impartiality.   It would demand that  Israel cooperate with the Special Committee in implementing its mandate.

Also by that text, the Assembly would deplore those policies and practices of  Israel  which violate the human rights of the Palestinian people and other Arabs of the occupied territories, as reflected in the reports of the Special Committee covering the reporting period.

By a draft on applicability of the Geneva Convention relative to the protection of  civilian persons during time of war, the Assembly would reaffirm  that  the Convention  is  applicable to the occupied Palestinian territory, including Jerusalem, and other occupied   Arab territories occupied by Israel since 1967.  The Assembly would demand that Israel accept the Convention's de jure applicability in the occupied territories and that it comply scrupulously with the its provisions.

Under the terms of a text on Israeli settlements in occupied Palestinian territory, including Jerusalem, and the occupied Syrian Golan, the Assembly would reaffirm that Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territory, including Jerusalem, and in the occupied  Syrian Golan are illegal and an obstacle to peace and socio-economic development.

Further, the  Assembly would demand complete cessation of the construction of the  new settlement  in Jabal  Abu-Ghneim and  of all Israeli settlement activities in the  occupied Palestinian territory, including Jerusalem, and in the occupied Syrian Golan.

Also, Assembly  would stress  the  need  for full  implementation  of Security  Council resolution 904 (1994) in which, among  other things, the Council called upon   Israel, the occupying  Power, to continue to take  and implement  measures,  including  confiscation  of  arms, with the  aim of preventing illegal acts of  violence by  Israeli settlers,  and called  for measures  to  guarantee  the safety  and protection of the  Palestinian civilians in the occupied territory.

By a text on Israeli practices affecting the human rights of the Palestinian people in  the occupied Palestinian territory, including Jerusalem, the Assembly would demand that  Israel cease all practices and actions which violate the  human rights of the Palestinian people.  It would call upon Israel to accelerate the release of all remaining Palestinians arbitrarily detained or imprisoned, in line with agreements already reached, and call for  complete respect by Israel of all fundamental freedoms of the Palestinian people.

The Assembly would stress the need to preserve the territorial  integrity of all the occupied Palestinian territory and to guarantee the freedom  of movement of persons and goods within the  Palestinian territory, including the removal of restrictions on movement into and from East Jerusalem, and the freedom of movement to and from the outside world.

By a draft on the occupied Syrian Golan, the Assembly would  call upon Israel to  comply with the relevant resolutions on the occupied Syrian Golan, in particular Security Council resolution 497 (1981), in which the Council, inter  alia, decided that the Israeli decision to  impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the occupied Syrian Golan  was null and void and without international legal effect, and demanded that Israel,  the occupying Power, should rescind forthwith its decision.

The Assembly would also call upon Israel to desist from changing the physical  character, demographic composition, institutional structure and legal status of the  occupied Syrian Golan and in particular to desist  from the establishment of  settlements, by other terms.  It would determine that all legislative and administrative measures and  actions by Israel purporting to alter the character and legal status of the occupied Syrian Golan are null and void, constitute a flagrant  violation of international law and of the  Geneva Convention relative to the  Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, of 12 August 1949, and have no legal effect.

Further, the Assembly would call upon Israel to desist from imposing Israeli  citizenship and identity cards on the Syrian citizens in the occupied Syrian Golan and  to desist from its  repressive measures against the population of the occupied Syrian Golan.
