I have the honour to transmit to you, on behalf of the Italian Presidency of the Inter-Parliamentary Union, the text of the following four resolutions adopted by the 118th Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (Cape Town, South Africa, 18 April 2008):
• “The role of Parliaments in striking a balance between national security, human security and individual freedoms, and in averting the threat to democracy”;
• “The role of Parliaments and the Inter-Parliamentary Union in ensuring an immediate halt to the rapidly deteriorating humanitarian situation in conflict areas and its environmental dimension, in facilitating the Palestinians’ right to self-determination — particularly by ending the blockade in Gaza — and in accelerating the creation of a Palestinian State through viable peace processes”;
• “Migrant workers, people trafficking, xenophobia and human rights”;
• Parliamentary oversight of State policies on foreign aid”.
I would be grateful if you could circulate the present letter and its annex as a document of the sixty-third session of the General Assembly under items 16, 41, 51, 56, 65, 67 and 101 of the preliminary list.
