Italy's foreign minister urged the Lebanese government Monday to deploy its army in southern Lebanon and said Italian troops could join a UN force within two weeks. Foreign Minister Massimo D'Alema urged the Lebanese government to "act immediately" and send its army south to ensure a speedy withdrawal of IDF forces. "I think that we have to deploy the international force on the ground as soon as possible because this is the condition for the withdrawal of the Israeli forces," he told a news conference with his Lebanese counterpart, Fawzi Salloukh. He said Italy was working with the United Nations "and it depends on the Lebanese government because the Lebanese army has to deploy in the south of the country."
