Refugees from Algeria in Morocco and Tunisia
XV. RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED ON THE REPORTS OF THE THIRD COMMITTEE
1500. Refugees from Algeria in Morocco and Tunisia
The General Assembly,
Having examined chapter IV of the report of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees,1
Recalling its resolution 1389 (XIV) of 20 November 1959,
Considering the action taken by the High Commissioner and the encouraging results achieved during the World Refugee Year,
Noting with appreciation the progress made on behalf of refugees from Algeria in Morocco and Tunisia,
Regretting that the situation which is the cause of this problem continues,
Recognizing that the living conditions of these refugees, and in particular those of the children, remain precarious and require constant improvement,
Recommends that the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees should:
(a) Continue his present action;
(b) Use his influence to ensure the continuation of the operation carried out jointly by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the League of Red Cross Societies, and, should this prove impossible, draw up and execute a programme for the assumption by the Office of the High Commissioner of responsibility for these refugees from 1 July 1961.
935th plenary meeting,
