Ambassador Bolton Warns of Syria?s Lack of Cooperation
(IsraelNN.com) United States Ambassador to the UN John Bolton warned of the lack of Syrian cooperation regarding compliance with UN Resolution 1701, the Lebanese ceasefire agreement.
UN Mideast envoy Terje Larsen reported that as recently as last week, weapons were smuggled into Lebanon from Syria, permitting Hizbullah to continue to re-arm itself following this summer's hostilities with Israel.
Bolton stated that Syria is not taking its role seriously, and continues to turn its back on its responsibilities regarding the UN resolution which seeks to cut off the terror organization’s weapons supply train.
