HARRISONBURG—Dr. J. Peter Pham, Director of the Nelson Institute for International and Public Affairs at James Madison University, spoke about the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), its record, and current and future roles during a twenty-minute live segment broadcast tonight at 9:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time on Canadian radio.
