The Lebanese government will meet on Saturday to examine the draft Franco-US UN Security Council resolution aimed at ending the month-long conflict in the country, a government source said.
"The government will meet on Saturday and take its decision on the Franco-American draft," the source said.
The draft resolution, which calls for an immediate cessation of hostilities, anticipates a withdrawal of Israeli forces as soon as possible and expanding the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) to 15,000 men.
