UNITED NATIONS (Jul. 2)
The Security Council, which met last Friday to discuss a report by the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, adjourned then without concluding the meeting and without setting a date for the resumption of the debate. The Council President, Oleg Troyanovsky of the Soviet Union, said members would be informed of the date for a meeting to resume consideration of the matter.
Israel told the Council on Friday that it will have “nothing to do with this debate,” charging that the recommendations of the Committee are “a thinly disguised formula for the dismantling of Israel in stages.” The Committee recommends Israeli withdrawal from all Arab territories and the establishment of a Palestinian state.
