Ilo Adopts Resolution Condemning Israeli Settlements

Download PDF for this date

The International Labor Organization’s (ILO) annual assembly voted 249-15 in favor of a Jordanian-sponsored resolution expressing concern over Israeli settlements in the occupied territories and their economic and social consequences. There were 155 abstentions, mainly by Western delegations.

The resolution deplored the establishment of settlements and called on Israel to end that practice and to dismantle existing settlements in the territories, including East Jerusalem. He attacked Israeli practices in the territories with respect to Arab workers. The resolution, as adopted, was modified somewhat from the original draft.
