 Report of the Secretary-General on the Withdrawal of the Emergency Force
Secondly, if the force was no longer welcome, it could not as a practical matter remain in the United Arab Republic, since the friction which would almost inevitably have arisen with that Government, its armed forces and with the local population would have made the situation of the force both humiliating and untenable.
It was thus a basic legal principle arising from the nature of the force, and clearly understood by all concerned, that the consent of Egypt was a prerequisite to the stationing of U.N.E.F. on Egyptian territory, and it was a practical necessity as well in acquiring contingents for the force.
Egypt would then be in a position to build up, behind the screen of this force, its full military preparations and, when it felt that those military preparations had reached their desired climax, to dismiss the United Nations Emergency Force and to stand again in close contact and proximity with the territory of Israel.

Under the draft resolution that had been circulated, the mandate of the proposed force would chiefly be to restore and preserve peace in the troubled region, Mr Akram said, stressing that he believed that mandate would be "robust enough" and the force would be equipped for that purpose.
Characterising the conditions in Bunia and throughout the Congo's north-eastern Ituri province as "an emergency situation," he said that France's agreement to head the force had been predicated upon several conditions, chiefly that the Security Council authorise such a force under Chapter VII of the UN Charter, and spell out its mandate precisely.
