Lebanese officials and IDF discuss the construction of the border wall


Lebanese military officials told their Israeli counterparts during a regular tripartite meeting chaired by UN peacekeepers at their UN positions in Ras al-Naqoura, which the wall that the IDF is building along the border between the two countries violate the sovereign territory of Lebanon. There are increasing tensions between the two countries concerning border works, rights challenged to the exploration of natural gas and Israeli warnings that Iran – through its delegate in Lebanon, Hezbollah – is transforming the country into an advanced base for manufacturing missiles and attacking the Jewish state. The construction of the wall has strained tensions, with Hezbollah, which threatens to open fire on Israeli soldiers who build the barrier. The UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), which hosted the meeting, said in a statement that the talks have attracted attention “due to engineering work south of the Blue Line previously announced by the Israeli side”, referring to the line that marked the Israeli withdrawal recognized by the UN from Lebanon in 2000. Neither side wants to return to a period of growing tensions and a violation of the cessation of hostilities; however, both seem intent on maintaining the line taken.

Freeland: Peacekeepers in Ukraine must become a guarantee


Any peacekeeping mission in Ukraine should be in the interests of Kyiv and promote its restoration of the territorial integrity of the state.

This was stated by the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Canada Chrystia Freeland, who emphasized that the Canadian government is in talks with other countries on the viability and benefits of peacekeeping and police missions in Ukraine. As we know, Ukraine has familiarized with the UN Security Council with its position on the introduction of peacekeepers in the Donbas and is ready for its own draft resolution on this. But before the launch of the international contingent, Russia insists on the withdrawal of its mercenaries and weapons from the east.

Special Representative of the US State Department for Ukraine Kurt Volker stated that Russians cannot participate in a peacekeeping mission in the Donbass.

Volker believes that the UN resolution on peacekeepers in the Donbass may be approved by the end of this year.
