The UN votes on partition, November 29, 1947
PLO Negotiation Affairs Department/ Ramallah/PNN
Palestine‚Äôs story at the United Nations began on 29 November 1947, with the UN General Assembly‚Äôs (UNGA) adoption of Resolution 181. The so-called ‚ÄúPartition Resolution‚ÄĚ proposed, for first time in history, to divide a homeland into two states. Seven full decades since the adoption of this resolution, the Palestinian people, whether in exile or under occupation, has continued to suffer the consequences of the lack of international action in order to fulfill their inalienable rights.
