Middle East

Throughout 1991, the search for a peaceful settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict continued to be vigorously pursued by various organs and bodies of the United Nations. Although not held under United Nations auspices, the peace conference that took place at Madrid, Spain in October/November under the co-sponsorship of the USSR and the United States was welcomed by the General Assembly as a significant step towards the establishment of a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East. At the same time, the Assembly considered that the convening of an international Middle East peace conference under United Nations auspices and with the participation of all parties to the conflict, including the Palestine Liberation Organization, would contribute to the promotion of peace.
