Note by the Secretary-General (A/59/525)

Draft resolution (A/59/L.43)


Ms. Al-Qassimi (United Arab Emirates) (spoke in Arabic ): ...


While the United Arab Emirates notes the activities undertaken by the Department of Public Information in the field of human rights, we urge that those activities be expanded so as to be able to uncover facts relating to violations of human rights that are committed in circumstances of occupation, war and during the process of terminating colonization. That includes the crimes committed by Israel in the occupied Palestinian and Arab territories, which constitute an abrogation of Israel’s commitment to the 1949 Fourth Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War.
