Description
The General Assembly this morning adopted a series of separate resolutions addressing United Nations humanitarian and disaster relief, including assistance to Liberia, Central America, El Salvador, Angola and Djibouti, as well as countries affected by the sanctions against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro). All of the texts were adopted without a vote.

Under the provisions of the resolutions adopted today, the Assembly:

-- Decided to refer further deliberations on the strengthening of the coordination of emergency humanitarian assistance of the United Nations to the 1996 substantive session of the Economic and Social Council;

-- Requested the Secretary-General to undertake, when conditions permit, an overall assessment of needs in Liberia, with the objective of holding a round-table conference of donors on the matter;

-- Requested the United Nations to mobilize resources to give effect to the new strategy for development of the Alliance for the Sustainable Development of Central America;

-- Urged the Government of El Salvador and all the political forces involved in the peace process to finish complying with the remaining commitments of the Peace Agreement and to continue to develop programmes designed to improve the lives of the most vulnerable sectors of the population;

-- Called upon the parties in Angola to fully and effectively implement the Peace Accords in order to bring peace and stability to the country, thus creating conditions conducive to its economic rehabilitation;

-- Requested the Secretary-General to increase the opportunity for countries affected by the implementation of the Security Council resolutions imposing sanctions against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro) to participate actively in the post-conflict reconstruction and rehabilitation of the crisis-stricken areas of the former Yugoslavia;

-- And declared its solidarity with the Government and people of Djibouti and requested the Secretary-General to continue his efforts to mobilize the necessary resources for that country.

Also this morning, the Assembly adopted the report of its Preparatory Committee for the Organization's fiftieth anniversary, taking note with deep appreciation of the successful completion of its work. The report was introduced by the representative of Jamaica, rapporteur of the Preparatory Committee.

The representative of Sweden introduced the draft on strengthening United Nations assistance, and the representative of Benin introduced a text on assistance to Somalia.

The Assembly will meet again at 3 p.m. today to take action on the reports of its First Committee (Disarmament and International Security).
