These are the December 5 and 6, 1973 hearings on "United Nations Peacekeeping in the Middle East" before the U.S. House Subcommittee on International Organizations and Movements and the Subcommittee on the Near East and South Asia of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the Preface: "The success of failure of the parties to the Arab-Israeli conflict to negotiate a viable and binding peace agreement, acceptable to all parties and guaranteeing the territorial integrity of all states within defined borders, will depend, in part, upon their ability to provide for a United Nations presence whose mandate is clear and unequivocal and whose main objective is to police demilitarized zones. Given the past record of the peacekeeping forces in the Middle East, the intensity of hostilities there, and the lack of agreement between the great powers over the mandate of peacekeeping forces, this will be no easy task." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John Lee, William E. Schaufele, Charles W. Yost, Lincoln P. Bloomfield, John H. Buchanan Jr., Martin F. Herz, and Indar Jit Rikhye.
