SUBCOMMITTEE 2 of the
AD HOC COMMITTEE ON THE PALESTINIAN QUESTION
5th meeting
Press Release GA/PAL/34
28 October 1947
COLOMBIA RESIGNS FROM SUB-COMMITTEE
ON PALESTINE

The provisional Chairman of Sub-Committee II of the Ad Hoc Committee on the Palestinian Question, Mr. A. Gonzalez-Fernandez (Colombia), this morning resigned the chairmanship and resigned from the Sub-Committee.

The Colombian delegate had announced at an open meeting last week that he would accept the chairmanship only on the condition that the composition of the Sub-committee be revised to include other non-Moslem countries besides Colombia.

As the Sub-committee has not been re-constituted, Mr. Gonzalez-Fernandez resigned.

Sir Mohammed Zafrullah Khan (Pakistan)was elected Chairman in his place.

The Sub-committee will meet this afternoon in working groups.
