Lebanon Urges US to Prevent ’Israeli’ ’Continued Assaults on Sovereignty’
Local Editor

Lebanese President Michel Aoun told US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that Beirut looked for Washington's "effective role" in settling Lebanon's dispute with the Zionist entity in the clash over the offshore oil drilling areas.


Aoun called on the United States to "work on preventing "Israel" from continuing its assaults on Lebanese sovereignty," saying Beirut sticks to its internationally recognized borders and dismissed the Zionist claims over a disputed maritime zone.

The president further underscored that the offshore energy blocks are located in Lebanon's waters and thus are in Beirut's exclusive economic zone.

Meanwhile, the US offered Lebanon mediation to ease tensions with the Zionist entity over the offshore gas fields in the Eastern Mediterranean.

So far, the Lebanese government has rejected the US plan of sharing the offshore blocks that was proposed by US Assistant Secretary of State David Sutterfield during his visit to Beirut last week.
