Israel welcomed the United Nations decision to mark the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. “We’re pleased as this is the first time since the establishment of the U.N. that it is commemorating the Holocaust,” Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom was quoted as saying in the Jerusalem Post on Monday, referring to the General Assembly session slated for Jan. 24. “The fact that 30 nations sponsored it and that 138 nations supported it speaks of the place that Israel holds within the world of nations.”
