Passed by the UN General Assembly on 4 November 1970, following the bloody events of Black September 1970 in Jordan. Making reference to Security Council Resolution 242 and noting that it has not been implemented, this resolution deplores "the continued occupation of the Arab territories since 5 June 1967," "Reaffirms that the acquisition of territories by force is inadmissible and that, consequently, territories thus occupied must be restored," calls for "Withdrawal of Israeli armed forces from territories occupied" and "Recognizes that respect for the rights of the Palestinians is an indispensable element in the establishing of a just and lasting peace." The vote was fifty-seven to sixteen, with thirty-nine abstentions.
