United Nations Conciliation Commission
The United Nations Conciliation Commission for Palestine (UNCCP) or Palestine Conciliation Commission (PCC) was created by UN-resolution 194 of 11 December 1948, in order to mediate in the Arab–Israeli conflict. The Commission consisted of France, Turkey and the United States. Its official headquarters was set up in Jerusalem on 24 January 1949.
The commission met from 12 to 25 February 1949 separately with Israeli and Arab governments, from 21 March in Beirut with Muhammad Nimr al-Hawari of the General Refugee Congress (GRC), the Palestinian Arab refugee delegation, and on 7 April in Tel Aviv with Israeli prime minister David Ben-Gurion. Then, it proposed the Lausanne Conference of 1949. After the failure of that conference, the Conciliation Commission continued for some more years, but did not achieve any significant success.
The Conciliation Commission succeeded the assassinated UN mediator Count Folke Bernadotte.
Count Folke Bernadotte was assassinated by members of the Jewish group Lehi on 17 September 1948.
