During their meeting at UN headquarters in New York, Barak and the UN secretary-general discussed Syrian and Iranian efforts to rearm Hizbullah in Lebanon.
The Israeli defense minister said that the terror group has resumed its activity in southern Lebanon in areas that are under UNIFIL's control.
Barak, who described the meeting as "good," thanked Ki-moon for the UN activities in Lebanon and its efforts to release captive IDF soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev.
The meeting with the secretary-general was the last in a series of meetings Barak held on his three-day visit to the US. The defense minister met with President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Robert Gates, among others.
