Background: The Soviet Foreign Minister, Mr. Jacob Malik, suggested at the United Nations on Friday (30 October) that the Big Four, or the Security Council, guarantee borders in a Middle East political settlement.
Mr. Malik was speaking n the fifth day of the General Assembly debate on the Middle East. If the accord was accepted, he said, it should be enshrined in a document which would have international legal force.
The Afro-Asian group sponsored a resolution which would have the General Assembly reaffirm the "inadmissibility of the acquisition of territories by force".
During the weekend recess diplomats are trying to produce a compromise resolution.
