I have the honour to write to you in reference to document S/2003/40 dated 14 February 2003 concerning matters of which the Security Council is seized and the stage reached in their consideration. In this connection, on instructions from my Government, I have the honour to inform you that the Syrian Arab Republic requests the retention of the following items listed in paragraph 8 of the above-mentioned document:
1. The Palestine question.
16. The Middle East problem, including the Palestinian question.
19. The question of the exercise by the Palestinian people of its inalienable rights.
26. Letter dated 4 February 1986 from the Permanent Representative of the Syrian Arab Republic to the United Nations addressed to the President of the Security Council (S/17787).
I take this opportunity to reaffirm the position of the Syrian Arab Republic set out in its note No. SC/GEN/46 dated 9 February 1998 (S/1998/111) addressed to the President of the Security Council.
I should be grateful if you would have this letter circulated as a document of the Security Council.
