Ahmad Shukairy, Saudi Arabia’s Minister of State for United Nations Affairs, voiced the proposals before the Assembly’s special political committee. He was the first Arab speaker to address the committee on the subject of Arab refugees which has been on the agenda for a week.

The Saudi Arabian representative’s proposed plan is based on the following points. 1. The repatriation of the Palestine refugees; 2. Prohibition of Jewish immigration into Palestine; 3. Outlawing Zionism; 4. The prohibition of Zionist fund-raising campaigns and 5. The creation of a United Nations agency to help the Jews of Israel to be repatriated to their former homelands.”

Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold announced today that the United States has contributed an additional $12,000,000 and Britain has given an additional $1,000,000 to help meet the 1057 deficit of the United Nations Emergency Force.
