UN Security Council on Wednesday voted unanimously to adopt a resolution to renew for six months the mandate of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force ( UNDOF) deployed on the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights since 1974, Xinhua reported.
The 15-nation Security Council adopted the resolution to extend the mandate of UNDOF, which expires on Dec. 31, until June 30, 2010.
The Security Council asked UN Secretary-general
Ban Ki-moon "to submit, at the end of this period, a report on developments in the situation and the measures" taken to implement relevant Council resolution, adopted in 1973, the resolution said.
UNDOF was established in 1974 following the agreed disengagement of the Israeli and
Syrian forces on the Golan Heights, the strategic plateau seized by Israel in 1967. UNDOF continues to supervise the implementation of the agreement and maintain ceasefire.
