Quotes

"I've made it very clear that I'm not going to continue to commit Irish troops to this mission unless there's a very fundamental review of how it's going to operate. Clearly this is no longer a demilitarized zone" Irish Defense Minister Simon Coveney said
"I cannot tell you exactly when, but it's very risky. It only needs one suicide bomber to cross the fence and attack an Israeli military patrol or a tractor full of farmers going to work in the fields..."
"The UN has assured us they will use all of their available resources for the safe return of our soldiers" he added
Lee Won-jae, Yozma Group Korea president, said, "If things go as planned, we will be able to invest in more than 500 Korean companies and create more than 10,000 jobs for young talents."
