  • Description

    The United Nations Ambassadors of the Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China yesterday (Saturday) bitterly condemned latest Israeli incursions into Lebanon. They were both speaking during heated emergency debates in the Security Council.

    Soviet Ambassador Jacob Malik supported a Lebanese call for United Nations sanctions against Israel. Mr Malik even mentioned the possibility of the Jewish state being expelled from the world organisation.

    Both Mr Malik and Chinese Ambassador Huang Hua tabled relatively moderate proposals condemning Israeli action and calling for an immediate withdrawal from Lebanese territory -- the Lebanese Ambassador claimed that Israeli units were still operating across the border. But at the end of three-hours of debate, the Council adjourned without acting on any of the various proposals.
