Chirac Sees ‘Dangerous’ Future for Peacekeeping Mission in Lebanon

French President Jacques Chirac has said the U.N. peacekeeping mission in southern Lebanon could become “dangerous” once the Hizbullah has time to recover from the recent Israeli offensive. “In my opinion there won’t be any problem for two or three months because Hizbullah is a little weaker,” Chirac told Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriquez Zapatero Sunday on the sidelines of the Europe-Asia summit in Helsinki. “But in three, four, five months it could be dangerous. I am a little worried for the future,” he said in comments caught by French television cameras and broadcast in Paris.
