Examination of the Final Report of the Economic Survey Mission

The CHAIRMAN considered it advisable to await the arrival of Mr. Palmer (United States of America) before taking a decision on the report. Meanwhile, the members of the Commission would have time to examine the report more thoroughly.

It was so agreed.

The CHAIRMAN proposed that the following telegram be sent to the Foreign Ministers of Israel and of the Arab States.

I have the honour to inform you that today, 16 January, the Conciliation Commission held its first meeting in Geneva. In accordance with the decision communicated on 9 December to your Delegation in New York, the Commission will resume its negotiations with the interested parties in Geneva on 23 January.”

It was so agreed.

“In accordance with its decision taken upon the conclusion of its meetings with the delegations of the Arab States and of Israel, in New York, the United Nations Conciliation Commission for Palestine held its first meeting in Geneva today.
