        Security Council
1 December 1954


Letter dated 30 November 1954 from the representative of Israel
to the President of the Security Council

[Original text: English]
[1 December 1954]

I have the honor to refer to my Government's complaint against Egypt concerning the enforcement by that country of restrictions on the passage of ships trading with Israel through the Suez Canal [S/3296, S/3300, S/3310].

It will be recalled that this matter was discussed by the Security Council at its 682nd, 683rd and 685th meetings, in October and November of this year. At the first and last of those meetings it was decided to defer further consideration of the substance of this complaint until the Chief of Staff of the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization was in a position to provide the Council with a full report on the Bat Galim incident.

In view of the fact that this report, with its clear and definite conclusions, has now been received and circulated to the members of the Council [S/3323], I have the honor, on instructions from my Government, to request that a meeting of the Council be called at an early date.
(Signed) Abba EBAN
Permanent Representative of
Israel to the United Nations
