Italy has no plans to cut contingent to UN Lebanon mission (ANSA) - Rome, December 5 - Premier Mario Monti said Wednesday that Italy has no plans to cut its contingent in the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon, UNIFIL.

"We haven't spoken about extending the UNIFIL mission but I want to reiterate that Italy is not considering any further cuts to the number of the contingent in Lebanon because we believe the UNIFIL force is more necessary than ever, given the situation in the region," Monti said.
