Parliament speaker Nabih Berri said that the draft final agreement submitted by U.S. mediator Amos Hochstein for sea border demarcation with Israel is positive and “in principle meets the Lebanese demands that refuse any impact for the sea agreement on the land border.”
Berri told Asharq al-Awsat newspaper that the draft consists of “10 English-language pages and requires examination before a final response can be given.”
Berri also said that the agreement would be signed at the Naqoura border point.
