UNITED NATIONS—Efforts by Pakistan and its president, Field Marshal Mohammad Ayub
Khan, to pressure Iran and Turkey to break diplomatic relations with Israel were in vain as a
result of the summit meeting held in Teheran with the Shah of Iran and the prime minister of
Turkey, according to Western diplomats at the UN. The joint communique which was issued Wed-
nesday at the UN by the mission of Iran expresses only "deep concern" at the aggravations of ten-
sion in the Middle East and the continuance of threats to peace and stability in the area.
The heads of states and government reiterated "their sympathy" for the victims of the recent
conflict and emphasized "the urgency of rendering maximum humanitarian assistance to them."
They also declared that "acquisition of territory by the use of force is contrary to the provisions of
the UN Charter." They reaffirmed in their communique that the withdrawal of Israel forces from
Arab territory is essential to the establishment "of a just and lasting peace in the Middle East."
