UN condemns occupation of Golan, votes a decision to pullout embassies from Jerusalem
Regional-Israel, Politics, 12/4/2001
The UN General Assembly has adopted a resolution which condemns Israel's continued occupation of the occupied Golan Syrian heights and also on Monday evening voted with a great majority a decision calling on all its member states which have embassies in Jerusalem to withdraw them back.
News reports said that this resolution which is debated and voted upon annually was adopted during the meetings of the UN general Assembly with the majority of 130 votes, the objection of two votes with ten members abstained from voting.
The current President of the UNGA, the Korean Hang Song Ann said that a new complete selection of votes will be made later because representatives of several countries said they did not get the chance to cast their votes.
The resolution stressed that the Israeli declaration to make of Jerusalem the united and eternal capital for Israel is illegal and as a result is null and void.
The decision regrets that several countries transferred their embassies to Jerusalem and thereby violated the UN security council resolution no 478 of 1980.
The UN General Assembly also adopted a resolution which condemns Israel's continued occupation of the Golan, noting that it will release four other resolutions later relating to the Arab- Israeli conflict.
