A State Department spokesman said Monday that the U.S. will honor its commitment to have a military grouping In Sinai after July-24 when the current mandate expires for the United Nations Emergency Force. He noted that there is not the same sense of urgency since Egypt and Israel are no longer belligerents as they were when UNEF was formed in 1973.
