What's missing?

U.S., France OK U.N. Mideast truce pact

An official with knowledge of the document said the draft calls for a "full cessation of violence" between Israel and Hezbollah, but would allow Israel the right to launch strikes if Hezbollah attacks it.

"It does not say immediate cessation of violence," the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the draft had not yet been made public.

...The full 15-nation Security Council was expected to meet later Saturday to discuss the resolution, and it was likely to be adopted in the next couple of days...
Call me silly, but I'd think Lebanon would be mentioned in there somewhere...

Update: I removed the premature thanks for Roger, so that's why Ahab's comment makes no sense.
