Description
Resolution 1109 (1997), Adopted Unanimously, Calls for Implementation of Resolution 338 (1973).

The Security Council this afternoon renewed the mandate of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) for another six months, until 30 November. The Force was established in May 1974 to supervise the cease-fire and disengagement agreement between Israeli and Syrian forces.

By its unanimous adoption of resolution 1109 (1997), the Council called upon the parties to implement immediately its resolution 338 (1973), which called upon them to arrive at a comprehensive and durable peace. It also asked the Secretary-General to report by the end of the new mandate period on measures taken to implement that text.

Through a statement read out by its President, Park Soo Gil (Republic of Korea), the Council also drew attention to the Secretary-General's statement, in his report on UNDOF, that the situation in the Middle East was likely to remain potentially dangerous unless and until a comprehensive settlement covering all aspects of the problem could be reached. He said that statement reflected the view of the Council.
