Legal aspects of international political relations

Continuing its efforts to develop legal measures for promoting friendly international political relations, the General Assembly in December 1989 again urged States to observe and promote the 1982 Manila Declaration on the Peaceful Settlement of International Disputes and stressed the need to settle such disputes through progressive development and codification of international law and through enhancing the effectiveness of the United Nations in this field. The Assembly commended the Special Committee on the Charter of the United Nations and on the Strengthening of the Role of the Organization for completion of the draft on resort to a commission of good offices, mediation or conciliation within the United Nations, and decided that it should be brought to the attention of States. Also in December, the Assembly invited the International Law Commission (ILC) to continue its elaboration of the draft Code of Crimes against the Peace and Security of Mankind, including the elaboration of a list of crimes.
