Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev and Hizbullah's chief spokesman, Hussein Rahal, refused to comment on the report released on Monday that UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has agreed to mediate for the release of kidnapped IDF reservists Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev. Word of the mediation mission came as Annan met with Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah in the Red Sea port of Jiddah, the latest stop in the UN chief's 11-day tour of the Middle East aimed at getting all sides to implement and support the U.N. cease-fire resolution.
