Resolution 2628


Passed by the UN General Assembly on 4 November 1970, following the bloody events of Black September 1970 in Jordan. Making reference to Security Council Resolution 242 and noting that it has not been implemented, this resolution deplores "the continued occupation of the Arab territories since 5 June 1967," "Reaffirms that the acquisition of territories by force is inadmissible and that, consequently, territories thus occupied must be restored," calls for "Withdrawal of Israeli armed forces from territories occupied" and "Recognizes that respect for the rights of the Palestinians is an indispensable element in the establishing of a just and lasting peace." The vote was fifty-seven to sixteen, with thirty-nine abstentions.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
