  • Description

    In the United Nations Security Council, a resolution calling for "National independence and sovereignty in Palestine" was introduced on Friday (24 August) but it was not put to the vote. The United States had threatened to veto the resolution, but in the event did not have to. At the last minute Kuwait's Ambassador Abdalla Yaccoub Bishara announced the Arab nations had decided to let the United States off the diplomatic hook out of respect for retiring United States Ambassador to the United Nations Andrew Young. Before Mr. Bishara spoke, Andrew Young commented on his resignation following the controversial unauthorised meeting with the Palestinian representative Zehdi Terzi at the Kuwaiti ambassador's home.
