The past 12 months reaffirmed the trend observed in recent years towards a continuous increase in the volume and scope of the activities of the Security Council.

...

The Council continued to monitor closely the situation in the Middle East through its monthly open briefings, focusing on important developments such as the Palestinian presidential elections and the Israeli withdrawal plan.

The situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian question

The Security Council continued to consider the situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian question, on a regular basis, with monthly briefings by the Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs and senior Secretariat staff.

On 31 August 2004, the President made a statement to the press, in which the members of the Council condemned the terrorist attacks in Israel that had resulted in the loss of innocent lives. They also condemned all other acts of terrorism, denounced the escalation in violence in the Middle East and called on all parties to continue the peace process in the region.

The Council held an open debate on the situation in the Middle East on 4 October 2004, at which the representative of Algeria introduced a draft resolution. The Council voted on the draft resolution on 5 October, but failed to adopt it because of the negative vote of a permanent member of the Council.

Following a regular briefing by the Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, and subsequent informal consultations on 22 October, the President, in a statement to the press, highlighted the concern of the Council at the lack of progress on the Middle East peace process and urged both parties to begin to implement, as soon as possible, the provisions of the road map.

On 13 January 2005, following a regular briefing by the Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, which focused on the Palestinian presidential election held on 9 January 2005, and subsequent informal consultations, the Council adopted a presidential statement (S/PRST/2005/2) referring to the following issues: the Palestinian presidential election; the future political process, in particular the Palestinian legislative elections; reinforcement of the Palestinian institutions; international assistance to the people and the Palestinian Authority; and the necessity to implement the road map for a viable, democratic and sovereign Palestinian State, in peaceful and secure coexistence with Israel.

On 16 February, the Council adopted a presidential statement (S/PRST/2005/6) welcoming the summit held at Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt on 8 February 2005, and the resumption of direct talks between the Prime Minister of Israel, Ariel Sharon, and the President of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas.

On 9 March, the Council adopted a presidential statement (S/PRST/2005/12) whereby it welcomed the conclusions of the London meeting on supporting the Palestinian Authority, held on 1 March.

On 21 July, the Council held an open debate on the situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian question, in response to a request by the Group of Arab States (see S/2005/469) for an immediate meeting of the Security Council to consider recent developments in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem. The United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Alvaro de Soto, briefed the Council on the latest developments in the region.

The Council continued to support a comprehensive and just settlement in the Middle East, based on resolutions 242 (1967), 338 (1973), 1397 (2002) and 1515 (2003), the foundations of the Madrid Conference, the principle of land for peace, agreements previously reached by the parties and the initiative of the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia endorsed at the Beirut summit of the League of Arab States.

Lebanon

Events in Lebanon during the period under review prompted the Security Council to examine the situation on numerous occasions.

On 2 September 2004, the Council adopted resolution 1559 (2004) by nine votes in favour, with six abstentions. The Secretary-General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lebanon addressed the Council before the vote and called upon the Council members to withdraw the draft. By resolution 1559 (2004), the Council, inter alia, reaffirmed its call for the strict respect of the sovereignty, territorial integrity, unity and political independence of Lebanon under the sole and exclusive authority of the Government of Lebanon, called upon all remaining foreign forces to withdraw from Lebanon, and called for the disbanding and disarmament of all Lebanese and non-Lebanese militias.

On 18 October, the Council considered the report submitted by the Secretary-General (S/2004/777) on the implementation of resolution 1559 (2004). The Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Terje Roed-Larsen, introduced the report and reiterated the Secretary-General’s conclusion that the requirements of resolution 1559 (2004) had not been met. In response to the report, the Council on 19 October adopted a presidential statement (S/PRST/2004/36), requesting that the Secretary-General report to the Council on the implementation of resolution 1559 (2004) every six months.

On 15 February 2005, Council members were briefed about the terrorist bomb attack on 14 February that killed the former Prime Minister of Lebanon, Rafiq Hariri, and adopted a presidential statement (S/PRST/2005/4), in which it strongly condemned the attack and requested the Secretary-General to follow closely the situation in Lebanon and to report urgently on the circumstances, causes and consequences of that terrorist act. On 18 February, the Secretary-General informed the Council of his decision to send a mission of inquiry to Beirut.

Following the issuance of the report of the mission of inquiry (S/2005/203), the Council on 7 April unanimously adopted resolution 1595 (2005) setting up an International Independent Investigation Commission to assist the Lebanese authorities in their investigation of all aspects of the assassination of the former Prime Minister.

On 29 April, Terje Roed-Larsen, who had been appointed Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for the implementation of Security Council resolution 1559 (2004) (see S/2004/974), briefed the Council on the Secretary-General’s first semi-annual report on the implementation of resolution 1559 (2004) (S/2005/272).

On 4 May, the Council adopted a presidential statement (S/PRST/2005/17), in which it repeated its call for the full implementation of all requirements of resolution 1559 (2004).

On 7 June, the Council adopted a presidential statement (S/PRST/2005/22) condemning in the strongest terms the terrorist bombing on 2 June in Beirut that killed a Lebanese journalist, Samir Qassir, and called upon all parties to show restraint and a sense of responsibility with a view to the successful completion of the electoral process and government formation in the country.

On 22 June, in a presidential statement (S/PRST/2005/26), the Council welcomed the Lebanese parliamentary elections held from 29 May to 19 June, and reiterated its call for the full implementation of all requirements of resolutions 1559 (2004) and 1595 (2005).

On 12 July, in a statement to the press, the President voiced the Council’s unequivocal condemnation of the terrorist bombing that day in Lebanon that killed one person and wounded several others, including the country’s Defence Minister.

The Council continued to renew, on a six-month basis, the mandate of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (resolutions 1583 (2005) and 1614 (2005)).


UNDOF

The Council also continued to renew, on a six-month basis, the mandate of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (resolutions 1578 (2004) and 1605 (2005)).
