United Nations General Assembly Resolutions 61/22 through 61/27 (2006)

A set of six resolutions concerning the Palestinian-Israeli and Arab-Israeli conflicts that were adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 1 December 2006. The first three resolutions offered support to United Nations organs devoted to the Palestinian cause. The fourth resolution reaffirmed the United Nations' commitment to the two-state solution, based on a large number of prior resolutions and agreements. The fifth resolution denounced Israeli actions in Jerusalem since the 1967 Six Day War and stressed the importance of finding a balanced settlement to the Jerusalem question that would include freedom of access to holy sites. The sixth resolution reiterated the illegality of Israel's annexation of the Golan Heights, repeated the demand for an Israeli withdrawal from the area, and called for the resumption of Israeli-Syrian and Israeli-Lebanese peace talks.
