New Syria Draft GA Resolution Calls for IDP Plan Like Safe Zone, Seat Switch?

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive Follow Up

UNITED NATIONS, April 11 -- The draft General Assembly resolution on which Inner City Press first reported on April 8, and put online April 9, has been revised again. Click here.

Among other things, the draft now contains a paragraph on internally displaced people in Syria, asking for a report from the UN's special rapporteur on the topic in thirty days. It

"Requests the Special Rapporteur on the human rights of internally displaced persons, in cooperation with the Secretariat and UNHCR, to report to the General Assembly, within 30 days, on the very dire situation of internally displaced persons in the Syrian Arab Republic in terms of safety, and their basic rights and livelihood, and provide recommendations with a view to meeting assistance and protection needs and strengthening the effectiveness of the international response to displacement.”

   This was explained to Inner City Press the hoped-for recommendation is "safe zones."

  More sources have told Inner City Press that a main goal of the draft resolution is to “lay the groundwork” for giving Syria's UN seat to the opposition. We'll have more on this. Watch this site.
