COMMUNICATION DATED 11 DECEMBER 1948 FROM THE GOVERNMENT OF
LEBANON TO THE ACTING MEDIATOR CONCERNING THE RESOLUTION OF
THE SECURITY COUNCIL OF 16 NOVEMBER

Paris, 11 December 1948


I have the honour to refer to the communication dated 17 November which you were good enough to address to the Lebanese Government concerning the resolution adopted on 17 November 1948 regarding the Truce in Palestine.

I am persuaded you will agree that it is essential, before the provisions laid down in the said resolution are considered, that the measures relating to the Truce should be implemented.

The Jewish forces having crossed the Lebanese frontier and occupied a number of villages, it is essential that those forces should be withdrawn delay.

When the evacuation of Lebanese territory has been carried out, the Lebanese Government will be prepared to appoint an army officer to get in touch with the Chief of Staff of the United Nations Observers.

In the hope of receiving a favourable reply to the present communication,
I have the honour to be, etc.,

(Signed) Riad Sohl

Chairman of the Lebanese Delegation
