Coffee Annan is an idiot...

Iran to help in implementation of UNSC Resolution 1701: Annan

United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan said on Tuesday that Iran has agreed to help in the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701 which ended the war in Lebanon.
In an interview with `Al-Hayat' newspaper, Annan said Iranian officials believe the resolution provides a valuable opportunity to find a final solution to the border issue with Israel and hopefully lead to a permanent ceasefire in Lebanon.
He said his talks with Iranian officials also included the issue of a prisoner exchange, that is, a possible release of the two captured Israeli soldiers in exchange for freedom for Lebanese prisoners, adding that Iranians, however, had made clear their position that any such prisoner exchange was an internal affair of Lebanon but that they were willing to provide help.
With respect to the Israeli demand for disarmament of the Lebanese Hezbollah, Annan said that the decision should come from Lebanese officials within the framework of an agreement with Hezbollah, adding that his view was shared by Iranians who also believe the parties should arrive at a consensus.
