could recommend collectiva measures the sanctions de manded by the Arab but that such a recommendation would not be compulsory upon UN members Hammarskjold warned how ever that iuvoking sanctions against Israel while supporting efforts to achieve peaceful solu tions may perhaps on the other hand be introducing new ele ments of conflict Demands Repeated Hammarskjold in his 2500 word report

that in iome cases Assembly action al hough only in the form of rec ommendations might be useful in emphasizing certain principles of he charter and might thus be ac cepted as an obligation He then
