2015 – Resolution calling on member states to release relevant records

Following Ban Ki-moon’s recommendations, the Swedish Permanent Mission to the UN circulated a draft resolution – Investigation into the conditions and circumstances resulting in the tragic death of Dag Hammarskjöld and of the members of the party accompanying him – urging all member states to release any relevant records in their possession. The draft resolution was supported by 74 other states – but not by the UK or the US.

The resolution (GA/RES/70/11) was adopted on 19 November 2015, following a statement by Ambassador Olof Skoog, Permanent Representative of Sweden to the United Nations.
