Lebanon would like to reassert the plea of the UN for more peacekeepers to help us in Southern Lebanon. Any number of troops pledged, no matter how small will help to prevent further conflict in this region.
Russia is currently considering participation in the U.N. peace keeping operation. We will make a decision based upon our strategic analysis currently in progress.
Lebanon would greatly appreciate the contribution of Russian forces.
The UK regrets its inability to deploy troops to Lebanon, mainly because we already have substantial resources tied up in other parts of the world especially Iraq and Afghanistan, where major operations are still ongoing.
We commend countries which have volunteered to send troops in the name of peace.
We would like to highlight Germany and Norway, which will be providing equally-important naval support to UNIFIL.
there are currently only 50 military observers of UNTSO in Lebanon, and not all of them are Australian. Lebanon would greatly appreciate it if Australia could contribute more troops to maintaining peace in this region.
Lebanon only hopes that Hezbollah see through this provocation nad maitain peace. We urge the Israelis to stop all military operations for fear of a return to the violence
