The mission term of Turkish soldiers working within the scope of United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) was extended.
Turkish Parliamentary General Assembly, on Tuesday, adopted a Prime Ministry motion authorizing the government to extend the mission term of Turkish troops in Lebanon for one more year as of September 5, 2011.
Deputies of ruling Justice & Development (AK) Party and opposition Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) voted in favor of the motion, while opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) deputies did not cast vote.
The decision to send Turkish troops to Lebanon had been adopted on September 5, 2006 at Parliament. The mission term of Turkish soldiers has been extended for five times since then.
