January 19, 1948 United Nations Sponsored peace conference

A invitation (e.g. to United Nations Sponsored peace conference)was accepted by the Mandatory Power, who designated Sir Alexander Cadogan as its representative, and by the Jewish Agency, who designated Mr. Moshe Shertok.  The Arab Higher Committee informed the Secretary-General by telegram on 19 January that it was unable to accept the invitation extended to it, and that it was “determined to persist in rejection partition and in refusal recognize UNO resolution this respect and anything deriving therefrom.”
