The report of the Secretary-General on the UN Disengagement Observer Force (S/2002/1328) states in paragraph 11: "... the situation in the Middle East is very tense and is likely to remain so, unless and until a comprehensive settlement covering all aspects of the Middle East problem can be reached".
