Israel Expects No Major Developments from Security Council

Israeli officials were reported as not expecting any major result to develop from the Security Council hearing in New York either from its complaint to the Council or from the Syrian complaint.

The view here was that any just and objective resolution in the Council would almost certainly be vetoed by the Soviets and that a pro-Syrian resolution had no chance of adoption. The slight importance Israel attaches to the Security Council debate was apparent from the delay with which Israel lodged its counter-complaint to the Council.
