    VIENNA: Austria defended on Wednesday its controversial decision to withdraw from the United Nations (UN) peacekeeping force on the Golan Heights, as its last soldiers returned home ending a nearly 40-year mission. Defense Minister Gerald Klug said he had repeatedly told the UN about the poor security situation in the ceasefire zone monitored by the peacekeepers, with war raging next door in Syria, and that nothing had been done to improve it.
