  • Description

    United Nations Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim has criticised the slow pace at which Israeli occupation forces are evacuating the territory they seized in southern Lebanon last month. His criticism came shortly after his arrival in the Lebanon on Monday for talks with Lebanese and Palestinian leaders aimed at securing assurances that United Nations troops would not be hampered in their efforts to maintain peace in the south.

    SYNOPSIS: On arrival at Beirut airport, Dr. Waldheim was greeted by leading Lebanese officials. Though his visit was only scheduled to last seven hours -- before he flew for talks in Tel Aviv -- Dr. Waldheim had arranged to discuss the situation in the south with President Sarkis and Palestinian leaders. He told reporters at the airport that he intended to discuss with them the full implementation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 425. Dr. Waldheim has recently criticised the Israelis for their unwillingness to pull out until they are convinced the U.N. can restore full security in the area.
