Get the Indian Blue Helmets out of Lebanon

Leave it to France

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

France has taken up the responsibility of leading UN peacekeepers in Lebanon. It is consulting Turkey, Pakistan and Malaysia over troop contributions. Amit Baruah reports that India appears to have been kept out’ of the diplomatic discussions over the composition of the peacekeeping force.

In fact, India should keep out of those diplomatic discussions. Now is a good time to withdraw the Indian Blue Helmets from Lebanon.

Update: They should rightly be called Blue Turbans”
