associated press
Turkey's Cabinet on Monday decided in favor of sending peacekeepers to Lebanon and will seek parliament's approval for the deployment. Parliament will convene to debate the deployment this week or next week, said government spokesman Cemil Cicek. "In principle, we've decided to join the UN peacekeeping mission," Cicek said. "The issue was debated in detail, considering our country's national interests." The Cabinet's decision comes amid mounting opposition in Turkey to a deployment.
