The BBC says:

A senior UN spokesman says it is now close to achieving firm promises of troops to make up the full peacekeeping force for southern Lebanon.

Edward Mortimer told the BBC that significant offers had been received from several Asian countries.

These are in addition to a commitment of up to 7,000 troops from European Union states.

The UN has agreed to deploy a force of 15,000 soldiers to maintain the ceasefire between Israel and Hezbollah.

Well the Americans, via their proxy force Israel, has finally managed to get what they want. The European Union is now going to be part of the current Middle East quagmire initiated by the Americans (and the UK) with their illegal invasion of Iraq (one of the biggest, and costliest, own goals of all time).
