United Nations Security Council Resolution 234, was adopted on June 7, 1967, after its appeal to the governments concerned to immediately cease all military activities in the Near East failed. The Council, concerned with the possibility of a broader conflict, demanded that the governments involved discontinue all military activities by 20:00 GMT on June 7, 1967. The Council also requested that the Secretary-General keep them promptly and currently informed on the situation.
The meeting was called by the Soviet Union and the resolution passed unanimously. Jordan and Israel accepted the resolution, provided other parties accepted as well. The following day the United Arab Republic also accepted the ceasefire solution, on condition of reciprocity.
