  • Description

    The United Nations Security Council has voted to retain the Emergency Force in the Middle East for a further six months.

    The Force, now almost 7,000-strong, was sent to the area as a buffer between Egyptian and Israeli Armies under a council resolution adopted in October last year. The People's Republic of China and Iraq dissociated themselves with the latest vote to retain the Emergency Force. Kenya's delegate to the United Nations Security Council Omar Ahmed Fakih remained delegates that it had been kenya that had originally tabled the draft resolution for the establishment of the Emergency Force. However, he was critical of Israel's refusal to permit on it's side of the ceasefire line, troops from Poland, Ghana, Indonesia and Senegal ..all countries which do not have diplomatic relations with the Jewish state.

    Following Mr. Fakih's speech, the resolution to maintain the Emergency force was put to the Security Council. Despite the non-participation of The People's Republic of China and Iraq, it was carried by 13 votes to none against, with no abstentions.
