PLO Resolution Introduced

A resolution under which the United Nations General Assembly would confer on the Palestine Liberation Organization the right to full participation as an equal partner in the Geneva Middle East peace conference was introduced in the Assembly today by Egypt.

The resolution offered by Egyptian Ambassador Esmat Alxiel Meguid would accord the PLO representation at the long-dormant Geneva conference “on an equal footing with the other participants.” They are Egypt, Syria, Jordan and Israel. The United States and the Soviet Union are co-chairmen. The resolution would instruct, Secretary General Kurt Waldheim to inform the U.S. and USSR about the resolution, if adopted, and not to ensure that the PLO was invited.
