Examining the request for statehood for Palestine

UN Briefing

In 1975, the United Nations General Assembly established the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People … At a recent meeting of this committee, Mr. Riyad Mansour, the Permanent Observer for Palestine at the United Nations, addressed Palestine’s completion of a two-year state-building program, and its determination to move forward with its request for recognition as the 194th Member State in the United Nations when the General Assembly opens in September.
