GENERAL ASSEMBLY

THE SITUATION IN THE MIDDLE EAST
SECURITY COUNCIL
Forty-third year


Letter dated 24 December 1987 from the Chargé d'affaires a.i. of the
Permanent Mission Lebanon to the United Nations addressed to the Secretary-General


On instructions from my Government and further to our previous letters, I regret to inform you that Israel has continued its acts of aggression against various regions in southern Lebanon, as indicated below:

The Lebanese Government reiterates its vigorous condemnation of these criminal Israeli acts, while once again drawing attention to the blatant fact that Israel is perpetuating its defiance of the principles of international law and its refusal to conform to the spirit of the United Nations Charter and the many resolutions adopted by United Nations forums. Accordingly, the Lebanese Government stresses, all the more, the gravity of the provocative attitude of Israel in violating, on an onqoing basis, the sovereignty of a neighbouring State and jeopardizing the life, security and property of its citizens.

The Lebanese Government also reserves the right to convene the Security Council in order that it may shoulder its full responsibility with regard to the alarming situation prevailing in southern Lebanon.

I should be grateful, Sir, if you would have the text of this letter circulated as an official document of the General Assembly, under the item entitled "'The situation in the Middle East", and of the Security Council.

(Signed) Chawki CHOUERI
Ambassador
Chargé d'affaires a.i.
