SENATE RESOLUTION NO. 1723

WHEREAS, the Holy See is a governing authority of the sovereign State of Vatican City; and

WHEREAS, the Holy See has an internationally recognized legal personality, which allows it to enter into treaties as the juridical equal of a state and to send and receive diplomatic representatives; and

WHEREAS, the diplomatic history of the Holy See began over 1,600 years ago, during the 4th century, A.D. and the Holy See currently has formal diplomatic relations with one hundred sixty-nine nations, including the United States, and maintains one hundred seventy-nine permanent diplomatic missions abroad; and

WHEREAS, although the Holy See was an active participant in a wide range of United Nations activities since 1946, and was eligible to become a member state of the United Nations, it chose instead to become a nonmember state with Permanent Observer status over thirty-six years ago, in 1964; and

WHEREAS, unlike other geographically small countries such as Monaco, Nauru, San Marino and Liechtenstein, the Holy See does not possess a vote in the General Assembly of the United Nations; and

WHEREAS, according to a July 1998 assessment by the United States Department of State, the United States values the Holy See's significant contributions to international peace and human rights; and

WHEREAS, during the past year, certain organizations that oppose the views of the Holy See regarding abortion and the sanctity of human life have initiated an organized effort to pressure the United Nations to remove the Permanent Observer status of the Holy See; and

WHEREAS, the removal of the Holy See's Permanent Observer status would constitute an expulsion of the Holy See from the United Nations as a state participant:

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the members of the Missouri Senate, Ninetieth General Assembly, Second Regular Session, hereby request that Congress commend the Holy See for its unique contributions to a thoughtful and robust dialogue in issues of international concern during its thirty-six years as a Permanent Observer at the United Nations; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that Congress should strongly object to any effort to expel the Holy See from the United Nations as a state participant by removing its status as a nonmember state Permanent Observer; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that Congress should emphasize that any degradation of the status accorded to the Holy See at the United Nations would seriously damage the credibility of the United Nations by demonstrating that its rules of participation are manipulable for ideological reasons rather than being rooted in neutral principles and objective facts of sovereignty and that any degradation of the status of the Holy See will damage relations between the United States and the United Nations; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Secretary of the Missouri Senate be instructed to prepare properly inscribed copies of this resolution for each member of Missouri's Congressional Delegation.
