Indonesia has had to delay sending troops to Lebanon to join a U.N. peacekeeping mission because of transport problems, a military spokesman said on Oct. 26.
A 125-member advance team had been due to leave at the weekend, with a main body comprising 725 soldiers following in early November.
“Yes, it has been delayed. The advance team will now leave on November 5 and the main body will follow after two weeks, roughly around November 22,” military spokesman Rear Admiral Mohammad Sunarto told reporters.
“The reason is completely technical, related to transportation matters,” he said.
