Cairo, Egypt (ANTARA News) - The Indonesian Force Protection Company (Indo FPC)`s task force enjoyed another trust to secure a tripartite meeting of senior officers in conflict-plagued southern Lebanon on Thursday.

"Like in the previous months, the Indo FPC`s task force has received a trust from the UNIFIL (United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon) to secure a tripartite meeting among Lebanon, Israel and UNIFIL," spokesman of the task force Nur Kholis said when contacted by an ANTARA correspondent in Cairo on Thursday.

The tripartite meeting brought together senior officers of the Lebanese Army Force (LAF) and the Israeli Defence Force as well as the UNIFIL supreme commander, Maj. Gen. Alberto Assarta Ceuvas.

The Indonesian escort team co-chaired by 1st Lt Andy Yuliazi and 1st Sgt Karsim carried out the trust in cooperation with the Force Commander Close Protection Team and the Sri Lanka Force Protection Team.

"One of the main tasks to secure the tripartite meeting is protecting it from any security disturbance and ensuring that the participants of the tripartite meeting feel secure," he said.

The tripartite meeting is held every month to discuss latest issues surrounding security conditions in the Lebanon-Israel border.

He said the routine meeting was important to maintain peace stability in South Lebanon.

Nur Kholis said Israeli jet fighters made illegal flights over Lebanon`s sovereign territory almost everyday so that they angered Beirut.
