    EACK: "We feel that some may interpret this paragraph as a mandate as opening the ??? towards a form of enforcement ??? against one of the p???. The Netherlands delegation wishes to go on record as vigorously rejecting such an interpretation and to state that my government reserves its full freedom of action in this respect.



    SHARAF: This resolution does not close the road to peace, it mobilises international moral support behind an aggrieved party claiming its rights within a peaceful framework. The resolution may not be decisive in breaking the stalemate, but an accumulation of steps in the same clear direction, backed by the United Nations moral force, is our only and potentially effective alternative to paralysis and inaction.



    TEKOAH: Israel cannot allow itself to be engulfed by numbers. The mechanics of vote cannot be permitted to overwhelm the interests of the search for real peace. The resolution before us does not serve these interests. Israel will therefore vote against it and teat it in a manner befitting a spurious document."

    Background: The UN General Assembly has asked the Security Council to take all appropriate steps to obtain the full and speedy implementation of its 1967 resolution setting guidelines for peace in the Middle East.

    A resolution to this effect was passed by 86 votes to seven with 31 abstentions. The 1967 resolution called for Israel withdrawal from occupied Arab territory and an end to Arab belligerence.

    Completing more than a week of debate, during which Arab members repeatedly asked for sanctions against Israel, the Assembly stopped short of endorsing that appeal, but invited all states to avoid actions that could constitute recognition of Israeli occupation.

    The Netherlands delegate, Mr. Robert Fack, objected to certain aspects of the resolution, which could upset the delicate balance established by the Security Council resolution of 1967. Jordan's delegate praised it as a way of mobilising peaceful forces backed by the moral force of the United Nations.

    Israel's ambassador, Mr. Yosef Tokoah, described the resolution as a product of Arab shorteightednoss. It was a spurious document and Israel would vote against it.
