SUMMARY RECORD OF THE 15th MEETING

Chairman:
Mr. HUDYMA
(Ukraine)

The meeting was called to order at 10.35 a.m.


STATEMENT OF THE CHAIRMAN

...

3. The signing in 1993 by the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and the Government of Israel of the Declaration of Principles on Interim Self-Government Arrangements had made possible the initiation of a peace process in the Middle East region and there were grounds for hope that that still very fragile and vulnerable process would continue and extend with due respect for the interests and needs of all the parties concerned. He pointed out that Ukraine, which he represented, was a long-standing member of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People and he hoped that consideration of the issue at the current session of the General Assembly would further facilitate the peace process.

...

24. Mr. BATAINEH (Jordan), Mr. AL-ATTAR (Syrian Arab Republic) and Mr. AL-HASSAN (Oman), stressing their keen interest in the consideration of agenda item 77 and underlining the importance of the work of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, suggested that consideration of the item should be deferred to a later date and taken up after the Committee had concluded its discussion of item 76, on international cooperation in the peaceful uses of outer space.
