Lebanese President rules out partnership with Israeli entity

Beirut, Oct 3 (Prensa Latina) The president of the Lebanese Republic, Michel Aoun, ruled out any partnership with the Israeli institution in the demarcation of the southern maritime borders.

Receiving Anna Gueguen, director for Africa and the Middle East at the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, the president confirmed that Lebanon will determine its position on the offer of mediator Amos Hochstein, in consultation with the Prime Minister-designate, the head of Parliament and the Technical Committee.

The Lebanese head of State highlighted the committee’s efforts in recent months to secure the nation’s rights over its waters and provide the right conditions for the start of exploration operations in the oil and gas fields.

On this issue, Aoun ratified that the French company Total will start operating in the exclusive economic zone and ruled out any possibility of a link with Tel Aviv.

President Aoun, who ends his term of office on the 31st of this month, expressed his hope that the start of oil exploration in the southern water fields will benefit the Lebanese economy after years of decline.

For his part, Gueguen said that reaching an agreement on the southern maritime demarcation issue will send a message of confidence to the international community and at the same time will have a positive impact on Lebanon’s economy.
