The Syria of today offers tourists as much a cultural experience as a sightseeing one, where ancient history provides a fascinating backdrop to everyday life on the streets                          


Letter from the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Syrian Arab Republic

to the Secretary General of the United Nation


23 October 1973

Upon instructions from my Government, I have the honour to transmit to you the text of the following cable:

"With reference to your cable dated 22 October 1973 transmitting Security Council Resolution 338 (1973) adopted on 22 October at that meeting, I should be grateful if you would note and inform the Security Council that the Syrian Government has accepted that Resolution and states that it has understood the Resolution to be based on:

1. The complete withdrawal of the Israeli forces from all the Arab territories which were occupied in June 1967 and subsequently;

2. The safeguarding of the legitimate national rights of the Palestinian people in accordance with the resolutions of the United Nations.

The Syrian Government acceptance of the Resolution is conditional upon the other party's undertaking to implement the Resolution.

I should be grateful if you would have this letter circulated as an official document of the Security Council and the General Assembly.
