Lebanon’s Prime Minister Najib Mikati stressed to the U.N. General Assembly “the commitment of Lebanon to the implementation of all the stipulations of Resolution 1701 and all international legitimacy resolutions.”
In the context of the maritime border negotiations with Israel, Mikati hailed the U.S. mediation in the file and emphasized Lebanon’s “ultimate adherence to its sovereignty, rights and resources in its territorial waters and Exclusive Economic Zone.”
Mikati also pleaded to “brotherly and friendly countries” to “stand by Lebanon, specifically in its current crisis, and to assist it to exit it and address its dangerous repercussions on the Lebanese people and the state’s structure and hierarchy.”
“We are looking forward to the re-convention of the conference of Lebanon’s friends, which France has always hosted in cooperation with Lebanon’s friends and brothers,” Mikati went on to say.
