The United Nations Secretary-General, Dr. Kurt Waldheim, met with the American Secretary of State, Dr. Henry Kissinger, on Tuesday (18 November) before travelling to the Middle East.
Dr. Waldheim will be visiting Syria in an effort to extend the United Nation's peacekeeping mandate on the Golan Heights.
After the meeting, Dr. Kissinger told reporters that the United States fully supported Dr. Waldheim's mission. He also said that the U.S. would spare no effort to achieve either an Israeli-Syrian negotiation or a more comprehensive approach within the framework of the Geneva conference.
The mandate is scheduled to expire on November the 30th and it's thought the situation could become explosive if the twelve hundred UN troops leave.
