Any United Nations resolution to end fighting between Israel and Hizbullah guerrillas should call for an immediate cease-fire on both sides and must be accepted by the Lebanese, Egypt's foreign minister said Wednesday. "The targeted resolution should be accepted by the Lebanese side," said Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit, according to Egypt's Middle East News agency. Aboul Gheit, who was speaking after a meeting with visiting Finnish Foreign Minister Erkki Tuomioja, said Egypt's position was supported by all Arab countries. Diplomatic efforts to reach quick agreement on a UN resolution to end the escalating Israeli-Hizbullah conflict faltered Wednesday over differences between the United States and France on Arab demands for the resolution to include a clause calling on Israel to withdraw from southern Lebanon.
