Question of Palestine home
29 May 1987
NOTE BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL
At its 2748th meeting, on 29 May 1987, following the adoption of resolution 596 (1987), the President of the Security Council made the following statement:
"In connection with the resolution just adopted on the renewal of the mandate of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force, I have been authorized to make the following complementary statement on behalf of the Security Council:
"As is known, the report of the Secretary-General on the United Nations Disengagement Force (S/18868) states, in paragraph 24: 'Despite the present quiet in the Israel-Syria sector, the situation in the Middle East as a whole continues to be potentially dangerous and is likely to remain so, unless and until a comprehensive settlement covering all aspects of the Middle East problem can be reached.' That statement of the Secretary-General reflects the view of the Security Council."
