UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan arrived in Beirut Monday at the start of a Mideast tour to strengthen the cease-fire in Lebanon, saying it was "a very critical time" for the country. "I think it's important that I come here myself to discuss with the Lebanese authorities the aftermath of the war and the measures we need to take to implement UN Security Council Resolution 1701 and to underscore international solidarity," Annan told reporters after being met at the airport by Lebanese Foreign Minister Fawzi Salloukh. During his two-day stay, Annan will meet with Lebanese leaders and visit with UN peacekeepers, who are already deployed in southern Lebanon. He also was expected to visit Israel, Syria and Iran.
