Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi met his Lebanese counterpart Wednesday for talks on the UN peacekeeping operation in south Lebanon - to which Italy is the leading contributor nation. Prodi, who arrived in Lebanon late Tuesday, was expected to fly to southern Lebanon later Wednesday to inspect Italian troops serving with the UN peacekeeping force known as UNIFIL. After his talks with Prime Minister Fuad Saniora, Prodi was due to meet the speaker of parliament, Nabih Berri, a political ally of the Hizbullah group. Italy is contributing 2,500 troops to the UN's expanded peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon, assembled under the UN Security Council resolution that ended the July-August conflict between Israel and Hizbullah.
