UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged Lebanon's new national unity government, unveiled on Monday, to fully implement Security Council Resolution 1701, which calls for the disarmament of Hizbullah. "The Secretary-General hopes that Lebanese political leaders will continue to work together in a spirit of unity, dialogue and cooperation," he said in a statement. The UN chief urged the new government to quickly take up the challenges that remain to consolidate both the sovereignty of Lebanon and the institutional capacity of the Lebanese state. In October, Ban said in a report to the Security Council that disbanding militias, especially Hizbullah, was "of vital importance" to Lebanon's democracy and sovereignty.
