UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in a report released Wednesday that he is concerned about Hizbullah in Lebanon having weapons and he believes the group should lay down its arms.

Ban said that both local and foreign militias exist and are active inside Lebanon and are not subject to governmental control.

The UN chief added that only political action within Lebanon could disarm Hizbullah and other terrorist groups.

Ban called on Hizbullah to act solely as a political party with no military function.
