Lebanon to receive US mediator in conflict with Israel

Beirut, Jun 13 (Prensa Latina) Lebanon will receive US diplomat Amos Hochstein with the aim of resuming negotiations in the maritime dispute against Israel, resulting from the presence of the Energean Power ship in the Karish field.

At the request of the authorities, Hochstein will conduct two days of work to mediate in the demarcation of the borders with Israel in order to maintain stability in the region.

The President of the Republic, Michel Aoun, and the Acting Prime Minister, Najib Miqati, highlighted once again the Lebanese position regarding the issue of the southern maritime zone, according to a report by the National Agency for News.

A joint delegation from the Lebanese People’s Congress and the Sons of Al-Arqoub Association participated yesterday in a sit-in held in Naqoura, on Lebanon’s southern maritime border, to emphasize adherence to the country’s right to its oceanic wealth.

The protesters urged the Lebanese state to delimit the southern economic zone according to the line drawn by the Army Hydrographic Authority, known as Line 29.

A bill presented last week at the initiative of deputy Hassan Murad seeks to amend the nation’s territorial limits on an additional area of 1,430 square kilometers to the south in the sea, protected by the defense of national sovereignty.

The tension between the two countries increased in the last eight days when a platform from the production unit Energean Power serving Tel Aviv arrived at the Karish gas field, located in the southern zone between Lebanon and occupied Palestine.
