Other political questions

In 1992, questions relating to information, the effects of atomic radiation and Antarctica were again on the General Assembly’s agenda. Promotion of communication and the free flow of information, and United Nations public information policies and activities were the subjects of two Assembly resolutions. The Assembly requested the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation to continue its work on the levels, effects and risks of ionizing radiation from all sources and noted with satisfaction the Committee’s increasing cooperation with the United Nations Environment Programme. The Assembly also underlined the significance of Antarctica for international peace and security, environment, global climate conditions, economy and scientific research, reiterated its concern over Antarctic environmental degradation, and appealed again for the exclusion of South Africa from the meetings of the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Parties pending the attainment of a non-racial democratic government in that country.
