WILPF Urges all governments, the EU, the UN and NGOs to intensify demining assistance, and to also provide more human and economic resources for locating and deactivating unexploded cluster bomblets so that daily life can continue in Lebanon.
WILPF further calls on the international community to support internal negotiations/dialogue efforts between the different/differing Lebanese political leaders/ parties so that the Presidential election takes place on time as decreed by the constitution without external interference/imposition.
WILPF calls on the international community to demand Israeli withdrawal from all occupied Lebanese lands and calls for all parties to respect the territorial integrity of each country within internationally recognized borders to refrain from all violent acts against the civilian populations, and to work within the principle that all conflicts must be resolved through negotiations among the parties themselves.Disarmament Explosive Weapons Extraterritorial Obligations Political Participation Israel Lebanon Resolution
