Secretary-General U Thant said here today that the United Nations will continue to bring Israel and Syria together again to the extraordinary session of the Israel-Syrian Mixed Armistice Commission which has been in adjournment for nearly six weeks.

At a press conference here today, devoted almost entirely to the Viet Nam situation, Mr. Thant was asked whether any progress had been made by Lt. Gen. Odd Bull, Chief of Staff of the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization, in the ISMAC talks. Mr. Thant revealed that Gen. Bull is now “indisposed” and has gone to his home in Norway for recuperation, “As soon as Gen. Bull comes back to his post with UNTSO, he will try to bring the parties together,” he said.
