  • Description

    The controversial resolution on the Palestinian problem was formally introduced in the United Nations Security Council on Friday (24 August). The resolution, calling for Palestinian national independence and sovereignty was introduced by Senegal, but there was no insistence on a vote. The United States had repeatedly warned it would veto the motion if a vote was called. United States ambassador Andrew Young whose unauthorised meeting last month with PLO representative Zehdi Terzi, cost him his U.N. job...would cast the veto. Despite American efforts to postpone it, the U.N. hearing began on Thursday (23 August) with Israel, Egypt and the P.L.O., all speaking on the Palestinian question.

    SYNOPSIS: Egyptian Ambassador Abdel Meguid said his country was satisfied with the resolution.

    Criticism from Israeli Ambassador Blum.
