Bou Saab says Lebanese stance 'strong' and 'unified' in border talks

The maritime border demarcation talks have reached a sensitive phase, according to Deputy Speaker Elias Bou Saab, who told LBCI on Thursday that the U.S. mediator will come back within ten days to Lebanon with a response.

Bou Saab told LBCI that a progress has been made in the negotiations and that the Lebanese proposal to Amos Hochstein has strengthened Lebanon's stance.

"There has been a lack of coordination in the past concerning the border demarcation, but it is different now," Bou Saab said. "the Lebanese can rest assured that none of the officials will give up Lebanon's rights," he added.

Bou Saab ruled out the possibility of a war with Israel. He said there is hope that the talks will reach a result.

"The framework agreement will put an end to the border demarcation file, but we must stop political bickering," Bou Saab said.
