BEIRUT: U.N. Interim Forces in Lebanon held its regular tripartite meeting with senior officials from the Lebanese Army and the Israeli army Wednesday to discuss several outstanding issues.

According to UNIFIL, the meeting touched on the implementation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701, including the situation along the Blue Line, air and ground violations, the ongoing marking of the Blue Line and the withdrawal of Israeli forces from the village of Ghajar.

Maj. Gen. Paolo Serra commended the parties for “their positive engagement and cooperation with UNIFIL in maintaining peace and security in the area of operations and for their continued commitment to the cessation of hostilities.”

“I express my appreciation to both the sides for their effective use of UNIFIL’s liaison and coordination arrangements that have proven to be vital in preventing tension and incidents, and in deconflicting the situation at critical moments,” Serra said, according to UNIFIL statement.

“I am very pleased with today’s constructive discussions and I was encouraged by the parties’ commitment to maintaining the prevailing stability along the Blue Line,” he added.

The tripartite meeting took place at the U.N. headquarters in Naqoura.
