Japan on Saturday welcomed a UN Security Council resolution that calls for an end to the war between Israel and Hizbullah and authorizes 15,000 UN peacekeepers to help Lebanon retake control of its south as Israel withdraws. "Japan has been calling for an immediate cease-fire to avoid further civilian victims and deterioration of the situation," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement. "Japan welcomes the unanimous adoption of the Security Council resolution." Japan will also continue to call on all parties to realize the cease-fire and agree on a political framework, as stated in the resolution, the statement said. Looking ahead, Japan said it will also contribute actively to restoring peace and stability in the region, but did not give details.
