The United Nations has just completed its second annual observance of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people. And the Observance concluded with the General Assembly voting on two important resolutions covering the Palestinian question. They related to the Camp David accords and P.L.O. participation in future negotiations.
SYNOPSIS: Egypt's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ahmed Esmat Abdul Meguid said that his government objected to resolution forty-four which among other things declared that the Camp David Accords have no validity in determining the future of the Palestinian people and Palestinian territories occupied by Israel since 1967.

However both resolutions were adopted. Israeli Representative Yehuda Blum spoke after U.S. representative Richard Petree and Assembly President Salim A.
