Question of Palestine home
7 December 1983
Agenda item 75
ISRAEL'S DECISION TO BUILD A CANAL LINKING THE
MEDITERRANEAN SEA TO THE DEAD SEA
Report of the Secretary-General
In answer to the concern expressed in the Special Political Committee, the Secretary-General would like to confirm the following:
"The Secretary-General received Israel's answer on 8 August 1983, as a result of his efforts to obtain the co-operation of that country in the implementation of General Assembly resolution 37/122. These endeavours started with the exchange of letters in March, May and June 1983.
"The response of Israel dated 8 August 1983 was received, unfortunately, after the Group of Experts had completed its work, as contained in document A/38/502. The publication of the response of Israel under the symbol A/38/502/Add.1 is obviously made without prejudice to the position of the Group of Experts as reflected in its report and does not imply any evaluation of the information provided by Israel."
