Q: What did Bunche hope to achieve with this agreement?

A: His concern, understandably, was to bypass the question of justice and concern himself with the peace -- just bringing peace rather than justice. Justice is an abstract concept which will not be determined by me. He had a more limited mandate to reconcile the parties on the military basis and bring a temporary truce, which he successfully did.
