the United Nations General Assembly

The General Assembly,

Having considered the question of Gibraltar,

Having heard the statements of the administering Power and of the representative of Spain,

Recalling its Resolution 1514 (XV) of the 14 December 1960,

Recalling further the resolution adopted on the 1 September 1967 by the Special Committee on the Situation with regard to the Implementation of the Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples, General Assembly resolutions 2070 (XX) of the 16 December 1965 and 2231 (XXI) of the 20 December 1966 and the consensus adopted on the 16 October 1964 by the Special Committee,

Considering that any colonial situation which partially or completely destroys the national unity and territorial integrity of a country is incompatible with the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations and especially with paragraph 6 of General Assembly resolution 1514 (XV),

1. Regrets the interruption of negotiations recommended in General Assembly resolutions 2070 (XX) and 2231 (XXI);

2. Declares the holding of the referendum of 10 September 1967 by the administering Power to be a contravention of the provisions of General Assembly resolution 2231 (XXI) and of those of the resolution approved on 1 September 1967 by the Special Committee on the Situation with regard to the Implementation of the Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples;

3. Invites the Governments of Spain and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to resume without delay the negotiations provided for in General Assembly resolutions 2070 (XX) and 2231 (XXI), with a view to putting an end to the colonial situation in Gibraltar and to safeguarding the interests of the population upon the termination of that situation;

4. Requests the Secretary-General to assist the Governments of Spain and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in the implementation of the present resolution and to report thereon to the General Assembly in its twenty-third session.
