  • Description

    The United Nations General Assembly has agreed to put the problem of hijacking on its agenda. It will be decided by the Assembly's 149-nation special political committee at a date to be fixed. The agenda item entitled "safety of international civil aviation" was proposed by more than 40 countries following the hijacking of a West German Boeing to Mogadishu in Somalia. On Tuesday (25 October), the assembly approved a recommendation by its steering committee on Monday (24 October) to include the item on its agenda. The International Federation of Air Line Pilots' Associations had threatened to begin a 48-hour strike on Tuesday (25 October) but called it off-following assurances that the assembly would deal urgently with the hijacking menace.

    SYNOPSIS: Saudi Arabia's deputy permanent representative Jamil Baroody urged concentrated international action.
