...

38. Mr. Dabbashi (Libyan Arab Jamahiriya) ...

...

41. As a number of delegations had pointed out, 16 Territories and millions of people remained under colonial rule; however, it must also be remembered that several more million people were still suffering under foreign occupation and were denied the exercise of their right to self-determination and independence. The Palestinian people, in particular, whose territory was occupied, were victims of the most brutal crimes; the Security Council had shown itself to be incapable of protecting them and the international community remained silent.

...

43. Mr. Saranga (Mozambique) ...

...

45. The people of Palestine also deserved to live in an independent state side by side with Israel. Palestinians and Israelis must work together to turn that vision into a reality by fulfilling their commitments under the road map and the relevant General Assembly and Security Council resolutions.

...

The meeting rose at 4.50 p.m.
