October 7, 2006 11:21

Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora called on UN Secretary General Kofi Annan to pressure Israel to stop "violating Lebanon's sovereignty" with sea, air, and ground operations. Saniora also asked Annan to put an end to Israel's "occupation" of the village of Ghajar, only after which, he said, a ceasefire could be declared. Annan and Saniora spoke by telephone, and agreed to find a solution to the ongoing conflict around the Shebaa Farms area, Israel Radio reported.
