In a letter dated 6 January 1986 addressed to the President of the Security Council (S/17717), the representative of Lebanon requested that an urgent meeting of the Security Council be convened to consider the continuing acts of aggression and abusive practices of the Israeli occupying forces in southern Lebanon.

The Security Council resumed its consideration of the item at its 2640th to 2642nd meetings, held on 13 and 17 January 1986 on the basis of the above request.

In the course of the meetings, the President, with the consent of the Council, invited the representatives of Israel, Lebanon, the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, Morocco, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the Syrian Arab Republic, at their request, to participate in the discussion without the right to vote.

At the Council's 2642nd meeting, the President called attention to the revised text (S/17730/Rev.2) of the draft resolution sponsored by Lebanon (S/17730), to which he had earlier called attention at the 2641st meeting, on 13 January 1986. The revised draft resolution (S/17730/Rev.2) read as follows:
The President stated that, in accordance with the provisions of rule 38 of the Council's provisional rules of procedure, the representative of the United Arab Emirates had requested that the revised draft resolution submitted by Lebanon (S/17730/Rev.2) be put to the vote; there being no objection, it was so decided.

The Security Council then proceeded to vote on the revised draft resolution (S/17730/Rev.2), which received 11 votes in favour to 1 against (United States of America), with 3 abstentions (Australia, Denmark, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) and was not adopted owing to the negative vote of a permanent member of the Security Council.
