Letter dated 23 March 1983 from the Permanent Representative of Jordan
to the United Nations addressed to the Secretary-General


I am sending you the latest information on Israel's settlement activity during the month of February 1983 in the occupied Arab territories, including Jerusalem. This activity, which is in violation of the principles of international law relating to military occupation and, in particular, the Hague Conventions of 1907 and the fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, includes the confiscation of Arab lands for the establishment of new settlements and the expansion of existing settlements and the promotion and expansion of the activity of the various organs and agencies of Zionist settlement.

I need not stress the dangers of the continuation of such a policy for peace and security in the context of the possibilities for peace in the region.
I should be grateful If you would arrange for this letter ana the annex thereto to be circulated as an official document of the General Assembly, under
item 69 of the preliminary list, and of the Security Council.
(Signed) Abdullah SALAH
Permanent Representative
