From peace(keeping) to war: the withdrawal of the United Nations Emergency Force
United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF), Six-Day War, peacekeeping
UN Secretary-General U Thant's decision to abruptly remove UN forces, in response to Egyptian President Gamal Abd al-Nasser's demand, is seen as one of the factors that led to the 1967 War, as well as to a failure in peacekeeping. This article discusses the rights and wrongs of that choice and also the role of the UN and other countries in the crisis.
