I have the honour to refer to the message which His Majesty King Hassan II recently addressed to you concerning the situation in the occupied Arab territories.
In accordance with the desire expressed by His Majesty in that message that all Member States should be informed of it, I would request you to circulate the text of the King's message as an official document of the General Assembly, under item 34 of the preliminary list, and of the Security Council.

Telegram dated 23 March 1982 from His Majesty the King of Morocco to the Secretary-General
Following the protest demonstrations by the fraternal Palestinian people in the occupied territories against the attempt of the Zionist authorities to dissolve its elected and legitimate municipal councils and to impose Israeli civil administration and authority by force with the aim of supporting and consolidating the Zionist occupation - having previously declared the Holy City of Jerusalem capital of Israel for ever and annexed the Golan Heights - and in view of the savage methods employed by the Zionist armed forces against innocent and defenceless Palestinian citizens, involving the murder of Palestinian youths, the arrest of their demonstrators, the destruction of their homes, the confiscation of their lands and businesses and the closing of their schools and universities, I wish to inform you that, in my capacity as President of the Summit Conference of Arab States, I condemn such unjustified repressive and inhuman acts, which are contrary to international law and international conventions, are distressing to all live human consciences and tend to erode the heritage of our civilized world and its noble spiritual values.
I request you to convey my disapproval to all Members of our Organization and to use all the power at your disposal to put an end to this organized and premeditated aggression by the Zionist forces against the Palestinian people.
King of Morocco
