Letter dated 28 April 1952 from the Chairman of the Conciliation Commission to the delegation of Israel
and to the delegations of Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Yemen and the Legation of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan
At this meeting it was decided that the Conciliation Commission would continue to meet at United Nations Headquarters in New York, where representation of the States members of the Commission will be maintained by their respective permanent delegations to the United Nations.
The Conciliation Commission has kept in mind the resolution adopted by the General Assembly on 26 January 1952 and the emphasis therein, both on the responsibility of the Governments concerned to reach a settlement of their outstanding differences, and on the obligation of the Conciliation Commission to be available to the parties to assist them in reaching agreement. The Commission is satisfied that it can now best discharge this obligation at United Nations Headquarters where it can convene without delay and where the Governments concerned can readily make full use of United Nations facilities as the resolution urges them to do.
The Commission does not overlook the possibility of meetings at its Jerusalem Headquarters and elsewhere if and when there should be a recognized need for such meetings.
