Questions related to decolonization

The year 1990 marked the thirtieth anniversary of the Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples. It was also the first year of the International Decade for the Eradication of Colonialism, proclaimed by the General Assembly in 1988. Commemorating the thirtieth anniversary of the Declaration, the Assembly recognized the significant and commendable role played by the United Nations since its inception in the field of decolonization and noted that, during that period, more than 100 States had achieved sovereignty. The Assembly expressed its determination to take effective measures leading to complete and unconditional elimination of colonialism in all its forms and manifestations without further delay.
