The Security Council,

Having taken note of the report of the Chief of Staff of the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization in Palestine dated 23 October 1953, [1]

Desirous of facilitating the consideration of the question, without however prejudicing the rights, claims or position of the parties concerned,

1. Deems it desirable to that end that the works started in the demilitarized zone on 2 September 1953 should be suspended during the urgent examination of the question by the Security Council;

2. Notes with satisfaction the statement made by the Israel representative at the 631st meeting regarding the undertaking given by his Government to suspend the works in question during that examination;

3. Relies on [2] the Chief of Staff of the Truce Supervision Organization to inform it regarding the fulfilment of that undertaking.

At the 633rd meeting, the President, following a remark by the representative of France, stated that the correct translation of the original French was “Relies on...” (See Official Records of the Security Council, Eighth Year, 633rd meeting, paras. 3 and 161).
