Malaysian troops will join the United Nations peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon within a month, local media reported Sunday. "Malaysia has informed the world body of its acceptance of a place in the UN Interim Force in Lebanon," Deputy Prime Minister Najib Razak was quoted as saying by the national news agency, Bernama. The mostly Muslim Southeast Asian nation said on September 20 that it had been invited to send 360 troops - 200 to perform administrative duties at the UNIFIL headquarters and 160 to be part of a peacekeeping and quick reaction force. "Our personnel should be leaving within one month of the UN invitation," the Sunday Star newspaper quoted Najib, who is also defense minister, as saying.
