Leaders of Lebanon's rival factions resumed talks Wednesday on the fate of pro-Syrian President Emile Lahoud and a UN call for the disarmament of the militant Hizbullah group amid signs that an agreement remained elusive on the two issues that threaten to destabilize the country. The talks, which began March 2, have focused on a 2004 UN Security Council resolution that called for disarming Hizbullah and Palestinian guerrillas. The resolution also urged the holding of new presidential elections. It was passed in September 2004, only days before Lebanese legislators extended Lahoud's term for three years. Wednesday's talks came ahead of a visit later this week by UN Middle East envoy Terje Roed-Larsen, who was expected to push for the implementation of UN Resolution 1559.
