Reserve seats in the Assembly for the European nations which for the present, cannot be represented

The Assembly decides that, in order to demonstrate the solidarity of all the European peoples and to emphasise the hope that the Assembly shall ultimately represent the whole of Europe, a number of empty seats shall, as a symbolic gesture, be reserved for those European nations which, for the present, cannot be here represented.
