Officials: Syria tells Egypt it opposes international force

Syria has told Egypt's foreign minister it opposes the creation of any new international force in Lebanon, but would not be averse to the expansion of the current UN Force there, widely regarded as ineffectual, officials said Monday.


"The Syrians are talking about expanding the UNIFIL," Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit told reporters in Cairo, referring to the widely criticized UN Force created in 1978 to restore stability in the area. (AP)
