Endorses the recommendations on priorities made by the Commission on Narcotic Drugs at its 33rd session on the various programme elements contained in the programme of work of the Division of Narcotic Drugs for the biennium 1990-1991; draws to the attention of Member States, in the light of resource reductions and in spite of the identification of priorities, the fact that without additional resources implementation of many important programme elements will be seriously impaired or prevented; urges States to implement resolution 3 adopted by the UN Conference for the Adoption of a Convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances by taking appropriate steps in the General Assembly as well as in the financial organs of the Assembly to assign the appropriate priority and approve the necessary budgetary appropriations with a view to providing the Division of Narcotic Drugs and the secretariat of the INCB with the necessary resources to discharge fully the tasks entrusted to them.
