Israel’s Second Application for UN Membership

On 29 Nov 1948, one year after adoption of Resolution 181(III) by the General Assembly, Israel submitted a second application for membership (S/1093) which included a declaration of acceptance of the obligations contained in Article 4 of the UN Charter:

“On behalf of the State of Israel, I, Moshe Shertok, Minister for Foreign Affairs, being duly authorized by the State Council of Israel, declare that the State of Israel hereby unreservedly accepts the obligations of the United Nations Charter and undertakes to honour them from the day when it becomes a Member of the United Nations.”

“Moshe Shertok
Minister for Foreign Affairs for the Provisional Government of Israel”
