Livni welcomes extension of UNIFIL mandate

Foreign Affairs Minister Tzipi Livni said on Friday evening she welcomed the UN Security Council's decision to extend the mandate of the UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).


Livni said she believes Lebanon should be responsible for its territory and called on the international community to show resolve in implementing the full ceasefire resolution, which also includes the release of the kidnapped Israeli soldiers and the disarmament of Hizbullah. (Ronny Sofer)
