It has become a custom by anti-Israel elements in the General Assembly, to condemn annually the ties between Israel and South Africa. The following resolution ignored the 1987 Israeli policy of not renewing certain contacts with South Africa. It also ignored major changes in the policies of Apartheid undertaken by President De Clerk of South Africa. The resolution was carried by a majority of 93 in favour, 31 against, 30 abstentions.
Relations between South Africa and Israel
The General Assembly,
Recalling its previous resolutions concerning the relations between South Africa and Israel and, in particular, its resolution 45/176 D of 19 December 1990,
Having considered the report of the Special Committee against Apartheid on recent developments concerning relations between South Africa and Israel, and the report of the Secretary-General on South Africa's nuclear-tipped ballistic missile capability,
Noting with concern that the military relations between South Africa and Israel, especially in the area of military technology and in particular the collaboration in the production and testing of nuclear missiles, continue unabated,
1. Strongly deplores the collaboration of Israel with the South African regime in the military and nuclear fields;
2. Reiterates its demand that Israel desist from and terminate forthwith all forms of collaboration with South Africa, particularly in the military and nuclear fields;
3. Urges the Security Council to consider taking appropriate measures against Israel for its violation of the mandatory arms embargo against South Africa;
4. Requests the Special Committee against Apartheid to continue to monitor the relations between South Africa and Israel and keep them under constant review and report to the General Assembly and the Security Council as appropriate.
