  • Description

    The General Assembly of the United Nations last night voted for the reactivation of the Jarring peace proposals. The Assembly adopted by 79 votes to seven, with 36 nations abstaining, a resolution urging Israel to respond favourably to the peace initiative of the U.N.'s special Middle East representative Dr. Gunnar Jarring.

    The resolution, which called for an Israeli withdrawal back to pre-1967 war lines, noted "with appreciation the positive reply given by Egypt" to Dr. Jarring's initiative to establish " a just and lasting peace in the Middle East".

    The resolution was initially proposed by 18 nations, mainly Arab and African states, and amended by five western European nations. The votes was called by Assembly President Adam Malik.
