    "MR. PRESIDENT, I CONSIDER IT VITAL THAT THE NEXT SIX MONTHS BE USED FOR REDOUBLED EFFORTS TO REACH POLITICAL SOLUTIONS OF THE PROBLEMS IN THE MIDDLE EAST. THESE PROBLEMS ARE FORMIDABLE, INDEED, BUT THE VITAL NEED TO AVOID RENEWED HOSTILITIES WITH ALL THEIR REPERCUSSIONS, SHOULD HELP US TO REGAIN THE MOMENTUM OF NEGOTIATIONS. IN THIS REGARD, I DISCUSSED WITH THE THREE GOVERNMENTS THE MAIN ASPECTS OF THE FUTURE NEGOTIATING PROCESS, AND ALSO THE CRUCIAL PROBLEM OF IMPLEMENTING SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION 338. MR. PRESIDENT, MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL, I BELIEVE THAT THE RESOLUTION NOW BEFORE THE COUNCIL FAITHFULLY REFLECTS THE ESSENTIALS OF THE SITUATION. I HOPE THAT IT WILL PROVIDE A USEFUL BASIS FOR RENEWED AND CONSTRUCTIVE EFFORTS IN THE NEAR FUTURE TO MAKE PROGRESS FOR A JUST AND LASTING PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST."
