At its 2990th meeting, on 30 May 1991, following the adoption of resolution 695 (1991)
, the President of the Security Council 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
(S/22631 and Add.1) states, in paragraph 23: "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.' "
