Draft resolution on permanent sovereignty of the Palestinian people in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, and of the Arab population in the occupied Syrian Golan over their natural resources

1. The Chairperson informed the Committee that Jordan and Mauritania had joined the sponsors.

2. Mr. Edrees (Egypt), introducing draft resolution A/C.2/61/L.13, said that it was a reflection of the Secretary-General’s report (A/61/67-E/2006/13), which demonstrated that the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, continued to deepen the economic and social hardships of the Palestinian people. The majority of the paragraphs were similar to those of General Assembly resolution 60/183. However, some amended and updated language had been included and two new paragraphs had been inserted: the eleventh preambular paragraph, which expressed concern at the widespread destruction to vital infrastructure in the Occupied Palestinian Territory; and paragraph 8, which called upon Israel to cease its destruction of vital infrastructure, including water pipelines and sewage networks.
