This resolution claims "any doctrine of racial differentiation of superiority is scientifically false, morally condemnable, socially unjust, and dangerous." It is a response to racial discrimination by governments around the world. The General Assembly's examples of "racist regimes" are the occupied territory of Palestine, Zimbabwe, and South Africa. The resolution specifically notes that eliminating colonialism, foreign occupation, Zionism, and apartheid are necessary to end discrimination. In 1975, the Soviet Union pioneered Resolution 3379 and was bolstered by Arab and African states amidst accusations that Israel supported the apartheid regime in South Africa through economic cooperation. In the early 1990s, with the emerging war in Iraq and the collapse of both South Africa's apartheid government and the Soviet Union, the resolution was formally repealed.
