Disputed Lebanon - Israel maritime border ?

December 31, 2010

“Maritime border demarcation is not part of UNIFIL’s mission,” said UNIFIL Deputy Spokesperson Andrea Tenenti in an interview published on Friday.

He told Al-Sharq al-Awsat that UN Security Council Resolution 1701 does not include the maritime border demarcation, adding UNIFIL is currently working on demarcating the Blue Line.

The Lebanese Parliament in August passed an oil exploration bill, which calls for the establishment of a treasury and a committee to oversee exploration and drilling off Lebanon.

Israeli Infrastructure Minister Uzi Landau said last week that Israel will defend its claims to offshore oil “with all necessary force in the face of all these [Lebanese] threats,” while Lebanese politicians have called for more speedy efforts to exploit offshore resources.
