UNSC calls for disarming Hizbullah, solution to Israel-Lebanon conflict

The UN Security Council is calling for the disarming of Hezbollah and all other militias in Lebanon. It is also calling for greater progress toward a permanent ceasefire and solution to the long-term conflict between Lebanon and Israel. A statement adopted by consensus by the 15-member council on Tuesday reiterates its commitment to the full implementation of all provisions of the resolution which ended the 34-day war between Israel and Hezbollah in August 2006. That resolution reiterates a call for the disarming of all militias and bans arms transfers to them.
