Members of the United Nations Security Council called on Lebanese parties Wednesday to "resume discussions toward a consensus on a national defense strategy" in the wake of the Rome II conference held earlier this month. The conference, held in the Italian capital on March 15 in support of the Lebanese Army and security forces, also provided a forum for the Lebanese security agencies to present five-year strategies to delegations from 40 different countries and international bodies.The Security Council also mentioned previous UNSC resolutions – 1559, 1680, 1701 and 2373 – which include provisions for there to be no authority or weapons in Lebanon other than those belonging to the Lebanese government.During the Rome II conference, a concept for a new United Nations Interim Force In Lebanon Model Regiment was proposed, in line with increased cooperation between the Lebanese Army and UNIFIL, which is stationed along the southern U.N. -demarcated Blue Line that divides Israel from Lebanon.
