Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said Monday that China will increase its peacekeeping force in Lebanon to 1,000 and double its already pledged humanitarian aid to the Middle Eastern country. In announcing the commitment of 1,000 peacekeepers, Wen said China hoped to see Lebanon achieve stability. "China is very concerned about the situation in Lebanon and hopes it can be fundamentally resolved," Wen said, speaking at a news conference with visiting Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi. Wen also said that China would increase its humanitarian assistance, to 40 million yuan (US$5 million, €4 million), half of which has already been provided to Lebanon.
