UN Security Council countries appear to have agreed on the wording of a resolution designed to end fighting between Israel and Hezbollah, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said today.
“The members of the UN Security Council now appear to have agreed” on the text on Lebanon, Steinmeier said before leaving for the Middle East, and amid haggling at the world body over how to end the bloody four-week-old conflict.
The reported development came as Israel vowed to press ahead with the conflict and its defence minister said it was poised to occupy more areas of south Lebanon from which rockets are fired.
