Other political questions

In 1991, questions related to information, effects of atomic radiation, Antarctica and Cyprus were again on the General Assembly’s agenda. Promotion of communication and the free flow of information and United Nations public information policies and activities were the subjects of two Assembly resolutions (46/73 A and B). The Assembly requested the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation to continue its work on the levels, effects and risks of ionizing radiation from all sources and noted with satisfaction the Committee’s increasing cooperation with the United Nations Environment Programme (46/44). The Assembly also underlined the significance of Antarctica for international peace and security, environment, global climate conditions, economy and scientific research (46/41 A). The Assembly appealed again for the exclusion of South Africa from the meetings of the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Parties until the system and practices of apartheid were eliminated (46/41 B).
