The maintenance of peace across the so-called "Blue Line" that separates Lebanon from Israel has been highlighted as one of the country's greatest achievements of the past three years by the UN's former senior official in Lebanon.

Among Derek Plumbly's most important responsibilities at the helm of the Beirut-based UN political office in Lebanon (UNSCOL) was helping to maintain security across the Blue Line.

The border zone was part of the deal which brought an end to the 2006 war between Israel and the Lebanese group Hizbollah.

Paulina Kubiak asked Derek Plumbly, who recently left his post in Lebanon, about the importance of maintaining the peace.
