  • Description

    While the United Nations General Assembly recommended on Wednesday(November 4) a three-month extension of the standstill cease-fire in the Middle East, due to expire on Thursday (November 5), the Jordanian Government took journalists on a visit to the Allenby and Damiya Bridge on the cease-fire line.

    As the journalists watched the strict security precautions on traffic crossing the two bridges -- officially the Hussein Bridge and the Prince Mouhammad's Bridge -- the General Assembly in New York were overriding Israeli objections to the extension.

    The resolution called for implementation of the Security Council's 1967 resolution "in all its parts" -- which included Israeli withdrawal from occupied territory and an end to belligerency in the area.

    The Assembly resolution ignored Israeli's demand for a "rectification" of the military situation -- a demand backed by the United States.

    The resolution also split the Arab states -- eight of which, all supporters of the Palestine cause, announced they would not participate in the roll call.

    It also called for a resumption of peace talks.
