Subject: TFF Open Letter to UN General Assembly President
TFF Sweden, August 14, 2006
Open Letter to Jan Eliasson
President of the UN General Assembly
Uniting for Peace: Strengthen the General Assembly.
The international board of the Transnational Foundation, TFF sends an Open Letter that aims to stimulate a wider discussion about the preconditions for a genuine peace process also after UN Security Council Resolution 1701.
Some of the points:
Invigorate Uniting for Peace. Plan a comprehensive all-inclusive OSCE-like conference under UN leadership. Provide genuinely impartial mediation and conflict-resolution. Implement Security Council resolutions on the Middle East as a Nuclear-Free Zone.
Involve civil society, push reconciliation. And give the UN a clear mandate and adequate resources.
This - not bombs, extremism and hate - can help peace break out in the region.
The Open Letter already enjoys the support of distinguished civil society leaders. We encourage everyone to sign it.
