United States: Draft resolution

The Security Council,

Having considered the report of the Secretary-General in document S/7906,

Having heard the statements of the parties,

Concerned at the gravity of the situation in the Middle East,

Noting that the Secretary-General has in his report expressed the view that "a peaceful outcome to the present crisis will depend upon a breathing spell which will allow tension to subside from its present explosive level", and that he therefore urged "all the parties concerned to exercise special restraint to forego belligerence and to avoid all other actions which could increase tension, to allow the Council to deal with the underlying causes of the present crisis and to seek solutions",

1. Calls on all the parties concerned as a first step to comply with the Secretary-General's appeal,

2. Encourages the immediate pursuit of international diplomacy in the interests of pacifying the situation and seeking reasonable, peaceful and just solutions,

3. Decides to keep this issue under urgent and continuous review so that the Council may determine what further steps it might take in the exercise of its responsibilities for the maintenance of international peace and security.
