Download PDF for this date

The General Assembly’s Social Humanitarian and Cultural Committee has recommended to the General Assembly that it defer until its 1970 session consideration of a draft resolution on the elimination of all forms of religious intolerance and discrimination based on religious belief. The postponement was proposed by the committee’s chairman, Mrs. Abdallahi Ould Daddah Turkia, and accepted without dissent. The representative of Canada also proposed postponement until next year’s session. Action on that proposal was held over until Friday.
