UN Invitation to PLO Expected

Download PDF for this date

An invitation to the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) to address the General Assembly is expected to materialize only next Monday, when the debate in the Assembly plenary is completed. Earlier reports said, however, that the matter might come up this week. A UN spokesman yesterday called these reports “unconfirmed rumors.” Diplomatic sources here explained today that by extending an invitation to the PLO to address the Assembly on the “Palestinian Question” the Assembly will in effect recognize the PLO as the representative of the Palestinian people.
