Download PDF for this date

The Security Council has renewed the mandate of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL). The vote last Thursday night to extend the mandate of the 5,688 -member force by six months, until October 19, was 13-0, with the Soviet Union and the Ukraine abstaining, as in the past. The Ukraine is a Soviet republic that has a separate vote in the UN.
