The President of the United Nations General Assembly, Dennis Francis, announced on Monday that he will resume the tenth emergency special session of the General Assembly on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict next Thursday.
He stated that he had received a letter from the Jordanian Ambassador to the United Nations, Mahmoud Hamoud, in his capacity as the head of the Arab Group, and the Mauritanian Ambassador to the United Nations, Sidi Mohamed Laghzaf, in his capacity as the head of states from the Organization of Islamic Cooperation within the organization. The letter requested the resumption of the tenth emergency special session at the earliest possible time.
He further explained that he received letters from representatives of Nicaragua, Russia, and Syria, along with letters from representatives of Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Maldives, East Timor, Vietnam, and Brunei, all about the same matter.
Francis stated, “I will convene the 39th General Assembly meeting for the tenth emergency special session on Thursday, October 26th.”
