Senator BAUME (NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is addressed to the Minister for Foreign Affairs. Did the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation vote recently to exclude Israel from certain activities of that Organisation and at the same time to include the Palestine Liberation Organisation? Did Australia vote on these resolutions? If so, how did Australia vote?


Senator WILLESEE - An Arab resolution condemned Israel for carrying out archaeological work in Jerusalem. It invited the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation to withdraw all assistance from Israel until it halted that work. In our view, the resolution was politically motivated. The charges against Israel were not established to the extent that would have justified such extreme action against it. Therefore Australia voted against the resolution.
