Israel called for peace talks with Lebanon. Addressing the opening of the Knesset’s fall session Monday, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Israel made gains against Hezbollah during this summer’s war in Lebanon. He also voiced hope that the Aug. 14 cease-fire could be parlayed into peace talks with Beirut.

Israel welcomed the U.N. Security Council resolution punishing North Korea for its nuclear testing. Israeli officials said Sunday that the unanimous Security Council decision to impose sanctions on Pyongyang in response to its controlled nuclear blast last week could send a message to Iran about its own atomic ambitions.
