United Nations Security Council Resolution 438, adopted on October 23, 1978, after reaffirming previous resolutions, considered a report by the Secretary-General regarding the United Nations Emergency Force and noted the discussions the Secretary-General had with all the concerned parties to the Middle East situation.

The Council expressed its concern over the continuing tension in the area and decided to:

(a) To renew the mandate of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force for another year, until July 24, 1979;
(b) To request the Secretary-General to keep the Security Council to publish a report on the progress made at the end of this period;
(c) To call upon all parties to immediately implement resolution 338 (1973).

The resolution was adopted by 12 votes to none; Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union abstained from voting. China did not participate in the vote.
