In 1977, the General Assembly called for the annual observance of 29 November as the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People (resolution 32/40 B). On that day, in 1947, the Assembly adopted the resolution on the partition of Palestine (resolution 181 (II))
In resolution 60/37 of 1 December 2005, the Assembly requested the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People and the Division for Palestinian Rights, as part of the observance of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People on 29 November, to continue to organize an annual exhibit on Palestinian rights or a cultural event in cooperation with the Permanent Observer Mission of Palestine to the UN.
The resolution on the International Day of Solidarity observance with the Palestinian People also encourages Member States to continue giving the broadest support and publicity to the observance of the Day of Solidarity.

The question of Palestine was brought before the United Nations shortly after the end of the Second World War. The origins of the Palestine problem as an international issue, however, lie in events occurring towards the end of the First World War. In 1947 the United Nations accepted the responsibility of finding a just solution for the Palestine issue and still grapples with this task today. The Palestine issue is manifesting in how the world power system functions.

The dispute requires a solution, not pacification. The role of the United Nations and the world community has been of pacification despite substantial resolutions on the resolution of the issue. However, the supreme power in the world supports the cause of Israel, which often commit excessive human rights violations and possesses trans-national borders. The whole world should unite for the cause of Palestine, and settlement of the long-standing issue is preferential. The peace of the region and that of the world link with the permanent settlement of the problem.

The Islamic world keeps specific sensitivity for the cause of Palestine. Even this sentiment led to the establishment of OIC. However, the performance of OIC has been mediocre for the cause of Palestine for multiple reasons. Pakistan has always supported the just cause of Palestine. The people of Pakistan feel affiliated with the Muslims of Palestine. Hence, it is critical for world peace to resolve the dispute according to the wishes and resolutions of the United Nations. The pacification is not a resolution.
