Event | On September 9, 1946, a round-table conference was held in London at the invitation of the British government to discuss solutions to the Palestinian question. Representatives of Arab countries attended, but not representatives of the Arab Higher Committee or the Jewish Agency. The work of the conference was suspended in early October of the same year, but it resumed work in London on January 27, 1947, with representatives of the Palestinian Arabs in attendance. Representatives of the Jewish Agency took part in parallel negotiations with representatives of the British government. On February 18, British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin announced that the conference had failed and that the question of Palestine was being referred to the United Nations.
