52. At the Beijing Conference and other United Nations conferences which had preceded it, the point had been made repeatedly that foreign occupation was an obstacle to the realization of women's inalienable human rights. One of the basic international obligations was solidarity with a view to ending foreign occupation and ensuring compliance with the commitments made. He called upon all peace-loving countries which defended women's rights to support the Arab women who were suffering under the Israeli occupation of the Golan, southern Lebanon and the Palestinian territories.

In order to implement the recommendations made at the Fourth World Conference on Women, Lebanon had established a national committee on women's matters which was responsible for coordination with the official authorities, both central and local, and with non-governmental organizations of the League of Arab States at the level of the Arab countries, and with intergovernmental bodies, non-governmental organizations, the United Nations and its specialized agencies at the international level.

The expert groups established by the committee had drawn up a national strategy and a triennial plan of action with the objective of guaranteeing the equality of women before the law, the participation of women in all political institutions, an increase in the participation of women in economic activities, the advancement of rural women and support for women in the territories occupied by Israel.
