Units On Heights UNITED NATIONS (AP) -The U.N. Security Council has called for early resumption of Middle East peace negotiations and agreed to keep U. N. observer forces on the Golan i Heights for another six months, j In a 13-0 vote, the council' decided Friday to maintain the 1.224-member buffer force stationed along the Israeli-Syrian front until next May. Its original mandate expired Saturday. China and Iraq did not take part in the voting. The action came amid warnings by U.S. Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim that the Middle East remains explosive and the dangers of renewed fighting will steadily increase if progress is not made in negotiations. In Damascus, officials said Syrian President Hafez Assad has received assurances from the Soviet Union and the U.S. that the Geneva peace talks will resume in January. No date has been set, they said.
