  • Description

    With the United Nations troops due to leave the Golan Heights on November 30, a renewal of the international policing mandate looks unlikely.

    The United Nation's Secretary General, Kurt Waldheim, is in the Middle East this week holding talks to try and keep the troops in the area. On Monday (24 November, 1975), Doctor Waldheim described the talks as being very delicate. He said there were still differences to be settled between Israel and Syria and that the problem was still not solved.

    Meanwhile, the ceasefire agreement between Syria and Israel is due to expire on Sunday (30 November) and both armies are reinforcing their troops and building new fortifications in full view of each other on the Golan Heights.

    The lapsing of the U.N. agreement would make it impossible for U.N. observer teams to continue to supervise the earlier Syrian-Israeli agreement, which controls the number of troops either side might have in the civilian zone separating their two armies.

    Doctor Waldheim was expected to put forward ideas from the United States Secretary of State, Dr. Henry Kissinger, on how peace efforts might be resumed outside the framework of the Geneva Conference.
