The United Nations could help "pave a path to lasting peace" in the Mideast if the international body approves a proposal to send a large intervention force to southern Lebanon, Foreign Affairs Minister Peter MacKay said. While Canada would welcome such a move, MacKay would not say on Monday whether Ottawa is prepared to commit troops to such a deployment. "There will be a United Nations Security Council meeting Tuesday, in which we will see direction given in the area of an international intervention force," he told Canadian television CBC TV in Charlottetown.
