Download PDF for this date

Reversing the previous decision of the Legal Committee, the U.N. General Assembly voted to call an international conference on missing persons for April 1, 1950. The new decision represents a victory for Israel’s argument that the Issue should not be indefinitely postponed. The vote on the amended resolution was 29-1, with 15 abstentions.
