PM calls for immediate cease-fire in Lebanon
8/4/2006
 

          PUTRAJAYA (Malaysia), Aug 03 (UNB): Prime Minister Khaleda Zia made an appeal to the international community for enforcing an immediate unconditional cease-fire in Lebanon with total cessation of violence.
Khaleda said this while speaking at a meeting of the Muslim nations here Thursday for taking a decision about the explosive situation in the Middle East following the Israeli aggression.
Dhaka also called for urgent deployment of an international force for stabilising the Israeli-Lebanon border situation under the auspices of the United Nations (UN).
She mooted a four-point proposal for brokering peace on the war front that also includes holding an UN-sponsored conference on ways and means of enhancing the authority of the Lebanese government and immediate reconstruction of the country's economy and infrastructure.
The proposal also include calling for a UN-sponsored Comprehensive Middle East Peace by way of ensuring the formation of an independent and sovereign state of Palestine.
Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, the current chairman of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), opened the one-day emergency executive committee meeting of the 57-nation forum.
The meeting was attended by 18 countries, represented by presidents, a monarch, prime ministers and ministers.
She said the OIC leaders assembled in the session should issue a firm call to the Israeli leadership for bringing an immediate halt to the violence that it has let loose.
"I appeal to you to take the lead in getting our message across Israel by the best means available at your disposal to end violence forthwith and get the peace process back on track," she told the emergency session.
"We are assembled here not to fan hate but to express our anguish and indignation at the Israeli atrocities. We are here not to incite passion of retaliation and more bloodletting," she said, making clear Bangladesh's stand on the conflict.
