The Security Council continued its consideration of the item at its 2572nd and 2573rd meetings, held on 11 and 12 March 1985. In addition to the representatives previously invited, the President, with the consent of the Council, invited the representatives of Cyprus, Czechoslovakia, Indonesia, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Pakistan, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Senegal and the Sudan, at their request, to participate in the discussion without the right to vote. The President drew attention to the request contained in the letter dated 7 March 1985 from the Chargé d’affaires ad interim of the Permanent Mission of Democratic Yemen (S/17011) that the representative of the Palestine Liberation Organization be invited to participate in the debate. He said that the proposal was not formulated under rule 37 or rule 39 of the Security Council’s provisional rules of procedure but that, if it was adopted by the Council, the invitation would confer on the Palestine Liberation Organization the same rights of participation as were conferred on Member States invited pursuant to rule 37. Following discussion, the Security Council adopted the proposal by 10 votes in favour to 1 against (United States of America), with 4 abstentions (Australia, Denmark , France and United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland). Upon the proposal of the representative of the United Kingdom, in accordance with rule 33 of the Council’s provisional rules of procedure, the meeting was adjourned. At the 2573rd meeting, the President stated that, as announced at the end of the 2570th meeting, he would put to the vote the draft resolution contained in document S/17000, sponsored by Lebanon, to which he had previously called attention. The draft resolution read as follows:

The Security Council then voted on the draft resolution (S/17000), 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 Council.
