Arab States Continue to Press for Ruling Giving Them Voice in Palestine Trusteeship

The Arab nations represented in the UNO are continuing to press for a decisive voice in any trusteeship arrangement which may be established for Palestine.

In their latest move, Syria asked at a meeting of the trusteeship committee, yesterday, that a phrase in the UNO Charter which provides that “the states directly concerned” be consulted in setting up a trusteeship for any country, be interpreted to mean the countries adjacent to the area to be placed in trust. Under such a definition Syria, Egypt, Lebanon and, possibly, Transjordan would have a voice in the Palestine trusteeship.
