The United States is planning to introduce a new UN resolution on disarming Hizbullah in southern Lebanon but US Ambassador John Bolton said Monday this should not hold up the quick deployment of UN peacekeepers. A new Security Council resolution could help break the impasse over getting an expanded UN force on the ground quickly. Countries that are potential troop contributors have expressed concern about the rules of engagement - and exactly what troops would be required to do, especially regarding the disarming of Hizbullah. "I think the initial force can be deployed now," Bolton told reporters. "We want the disarming of Hizbullah to be accomplished rapidly so that the democratically elected government of Lebanon can establish full control over its territory."
