United Nations Security Council Resolution 338

   On 22 October 1973, the United Nations (UN) Security Council adopted Resolution 338, which called for an immediate cease-fire in the Yom Kippur War and the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 242 and explicitly required negotiations "between the parties." The full text reads as follows:
   The Security Council l. Calls upon all parties to the present fighting to cease all firing and terminate all military activity immediately, no later than 12 hours after the moment of the adoption of this decision, in the positions they now occupy; 2. Calls upon the parties concerned to start immediately after the cease fire the implementation of Security Council resolution 242 (1967) in all of its parts; 3. Decides that, immediately and concurrently with the cease-fire, negotiations start between the parties concerned under appropriate auspices aimed at establishing a just and durable peace in the Middle East.
   The resolution provided the basis for the initial postwar military disengagement negotiations involving Israel, Egypt, and Syria.
