Committee on Information
Report on the twenty-ninth session
(28 April-9 May 2008)
24. One speaker, representing a large group, commended the Department for its implementation of the Special Programme on the Question of Palestine. The programme, he said, was useful in offering an annual training programme for Palestinian broadcasters and journalists from the Occupied Palestinian Territory to assist them in developing their media capacity and skills. Several other speakers reiterated the commendation of the Special Programme and emphasized its importance in raising global awareness on the Question of Palestine, as well as on its training activities. Another speaker called on the Department to undertake more activities to contribute to the efforts “so that the Palestinians could enjoy their right to self-determination and to an independent State”.
