  • Description

    Diplomats at the United Nations are trying to produce a new compromise resolution on the Middle East after five days of often acrimonious debate in the General Assembly. The Assembly is now in weekend recess, but before the closing session on Friday two opposing resolutions had been presented for consideration. Nineteen members of the Afro-Asian group have presented a resolution calling for the General Assembly to recognisee the 'inadmissibility of the acquisition of territories by force'.

    In his speech in the debate, the Jordanian delegate, Mr. El Farra, called for recognition of the rights of the people of Palestine. The U.A.R. delegate, Mr. El Xayyat, said his country would accept a peace settlement based on a General Assembly resolution.
