Israel would agree to a cease-fire if an international force had the mandate and power to disarm Hizbullah, Australian Prime Minister John Howard said Friday. Howard said Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert called him late Thursday to thank Australia for its diplomatic support in the current crisis. "The Israelis, I believe, would be agreeable to a cease-fire provided it was on a proper basis, and they're right about that," Howard told Melbourne Radio 3AW.
