The article reports on the activities of the United Nations Security Council. The Security Council met to consider the India-Pakistan question which had been brought to the attention of the council by Pakistani foreign minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, who decried the installation of what he termed a puppet premier in Kashmir. He said that Kashmir premier G.M. Sadiq has demanded complete integration with the rest of India and has introduced a bill in the state's assembly which sought to change the designation of the head of state and the head of government in Kashmir and provided for the replacement of the state flag by the flag of India. The Security Council was unable to reach a resolution that would address the India-Pakistan question however the council suggested that the secretary general might eventually give useful assistance to the parties by facilitating the resumption of negotiations on the question of Kashmir or by assisting them if the negotiations should meet with any difficulties. The Security Council also considered the complaint of the Yemeni government against the continuous British acts of aggression against Yemen Arab Republic. According to the Yemeni government, the attack and the massing of British troops and heavy equipment between the Baihan Protectorate and Harib, together with the frequent raids on towns and villages, constituted an act of one-sided British war against them, endangered international peace and security and created a situation which could lead to unfavorable consequences. The Security Council passed a resolution that would condemn reprisals as incompatible with the purposes and principles of the United Nations, deplore the British military action at Harib and call upon Yemen and Great Britain to exercise maximum restraint in order to avoid further incidents and to restore peace in the area.
