United Nations Security Council Resolution 1788 was unanimously adopted on 14 December 2007.


The Security Council this morning renewed the mandate of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF), which has supervised the ceasefire between Israel and Syria since 1974, until 30 June 2008.

Unanimously adopting resolution 1788 (2007), the Council called on the parties concerned to immediately implement its resolution 338 (1973) of 22 October 1973. By that text, the Council decided that negotiations should start between the parties with the aim of establishing a just and lasting peace in the Middle East.

In a statement read out by Council President Aldo Mantovani (Italy), the Council declared that it shared the view expressed in the Secretary-General’s report on UNDOF (document S/2007/698) that the situation in the Middle East was tense and was likely to remain so, unless and until a comprehensive settlement covering all aspects of the Middle East problem could be reached.[1]
