(SBU) PolChief passed reftel points to MFA's Director of
International Organizations Yacub al-Hosani on November 24 with a
reminder that the UN needs to maintain a balanced role in moving the
Israeli-Palestinian dispute towards a positive conclusion.
Emphasizing that the UN must avoid the bias represented in the
resolutions listed reftel, PolChief expressed concern that the UAEG
had often voted in support of them. Al-Hosani noted the concern, yet
added that sometimes these resolutions were deemed the only way to
keep the Palestinian plight from being forgotten.
