7. Mr. Shiweva (Namibia),...


9. Namibia also reiterated its support for and solidarity with the Palestinian people in their struggle for self-determination and for the establishment of a sovereign Palestinian State. Finally, his delegation urged that the plan of action for the Second International Decade for the Eradication of Colonialism should be implemented without delay.

10. Mr. Gebreel (Libyan Arab Jamahiriya) ... As for the Palestinian people, the international community was still proving incapable of ending their tragedy, which had now lasted over 50 years, through enforcement of the United Nations resolutions that would enable them to exercise their inalienable right to self-determination and return to their land to establish an independent State. His country supported all efforts to eradicate the last surviving pockets of colonialism and implement the Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples. With those two objectives in mind, he appealed for the cooperation of all States with the Committee.


The meeting rose at 1 p.m.
