  • [01] DM on sending peacekeeping force to Lebanon

    Greece has not discussed or been formally asked to contribute troops to a multinational peacekeeping force in Lebanon, National Defence Minister Evangelos Meimarakis told reporters on Tuesday in response to questions.

    He pointed out that all discussion so far were on a theoretical level and added, responding to another question, that if such a request is made based on a UN Security Council decision then it will be a serious matter. He underlined that the government has set specific parameters such as a relevant UN Security Council decision, the consent of both sides in the region and a ceasefire.

    Responding to a comment by a member of the press that the soldiers will be sent to the frontline, Meimarakis added that there is no frontline during a ceasefire.
