The General Assembly,
Recalling its resolutions 43/131 of 8 December 1988 and 45/100 of 14 December 1990 concerning humanitarian assistance to victims of natural disasters and similar emergency situations,
Deeply concerned about the serious consequences of the eruption of the Cerro Negro volcano in Nicaragua, which has given rise to an emergency situation in the affected areas, and about the urgent need to restore normal conditions for the population,
Recognizing that the great efforts that the Government of Nicaragua is making to promote economic and social development and the process of national reconciliation have been hampered by this natural disaster,
Considering the generous assistance that has been provided by the United Nations system, and by some States, to alleviate this emergency situation in Nicaragua,
1. Requests the Secretary-General, to the extent of his authority, to support the rehabilitation efforts that are being made by the Government of Nicaragua in the affected areas;
2. Invites Member States, international financial institutions, organizations, programmes and specialized agencies of the United Nations system to continue to contribute and to respond generously for the duration of the emergency and of the rehabilitation process in Nicaragua.
