28. Mr. Gidor (Israel) ...
31. Israel was disappointed that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was the only conflict that still had a special information programme and, moreover, one which — by the very definition of its mandate — conveyed a one-sided picture. That seemed rather wasteful, at a time when there were no funds to tell other, more globally relevant stories.
33. Mr. Alzaabi (United Arab Emirates) ...
36. Finally, he expressed concern that Arabic was not being given equal treatment and called upon DPI to rectify the situation. He also called for greater cooperation between DPI and the programmes and agencies of the United Nations and for the strengthening of DPI activities aimed at disseminating information on the question of Palestine, developments in the Middle East and the suffering of the Palestinian people.
