Question of Palestine home
30 May 1984
At the 2544th meeting, on 30 May 1984, following the adoption of resolution 551 (1984), the President 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 Observer Force
/ states, in paragraph 26: "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.'"
