On the eve of the scheduled Middle East peace summit, the United Nations secretary-general Ban Ki-moon has called on Israel and the Lebanese Shia militia, Hezbollah, to work for peace. In a report released on Wednesday, Ban said the months ahead would be critical for the full implementation of the Security Council resolution that ended last year’s war between Israel and Hezbollah.

…Ban said he hoped that last month’s humanitarian gestures, in which the remains of an Israeli civilian were swapped for a Lebanese prisoner and the bodies of two Hezbollah members, would prompt action to meet the humanitarian demands contained in the UN resolution…The secretary-general stressed that progress was also needed on releasing Lebanese prisoners, enforcing the arms embargo on the Syrian-Lebanese border and ending Israeli air violations of Lebanese sovereignty.
