UNITED NATIONS GROUP OF EXPERTS ON GEOGRAPHICAL NAMES (UNGEGN)
Bearing in mind the various resolutions, in particular resolutions 8 and 9, respectively, of the second and third United Nations Conferences on the Standardization of Geographical Names;
Noting that the Arab countries, at the recommendation of Arab experts, in 1972 adopted a system for the romanization of Arabic script, which was amended in 1972;
Observing that, despite the efforts that have been made, difficulties remain with respect to the application of this system of romanization,
Recommends that the League of Arab States should, through its specialized structures, continue its efforts to organize a conference with a view to considering the difficulties encountered in applying the amended Beirut system of 1972 for the romanization of Arabic script, and submit, as soon as possible, a solution to the United Nations Group of Experts on Geographical Names.
Note. This resolution is an elaboration of res. II/8 and is superseded by res. XI/3.
