    The US State Department has declared that Turkey did not break the United Nations Security Council decision 1701 calling for an embargo on Hizbollah forces in Lebanon. Spokesperson Tom Casey, in a daily briefing yesterday, noted that Turkey was being extremely sensitive in relation to the embargo, as were other countries in the region.

    Said Casey, "We definitely do not believe that Turkey has done anything to infract decision 1701 from the UN....we have full confidence that Turkey is implementing this decision."
    Casey also mentioned in the briefing that if Turkey were to send peace-keeping forces to Lebanon, they would not be involved in any fighting.
