Denmark on Friday said it plans to send about 140 troops to the UN peacekeeping mission in Lebanon. The Defense Ministry said Denmark received a request from the United Nations to send logistics staff to the UN force known as UNIFIL. The deployment still must be approved by the Danish Parliament. Foreign Minister Per Stig Moeller was quoted by the Berlingske Tidende daily on Friday as saying all political parties except for a small left-wing group support sending the troops. Denmark sent a 13,000-strong force to the southern Lebanese border to join 15,000 Lebanese troops monitoring the 2006 truce that ended the Second Lebanon War.
