Beirut responds to the text of the proposed Security Council resolution:

Nouhad Mahmoud, a Lebanese foreign ministry official, said on Sunday that the government “would have liked to see our concerns more reflected in the text” of the draft resolution.

“Unfortunately, it lacked, for instance, a call for the withdrawal of Israeli forces which are now in Lebanon. That is a recipe for more confrontation.”

He said the government was also unhappy that the resolution does not call for the Shebaa Farms area to be put under UN control, as Lebanon has asked, while its future status is figured out.
