Lebanon to settle border issues with Israel within three months

Talks will take place in the coming months to achieve stability on the Lebanon-Israel border, with the Lebanese government thus planning to resume implementation of the UN Security Council resolution, TASS reports


According to Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati, the country’s government hopes to achieve stability on the southern border and settle disputes with Israel within the next three months, “This will save Lebanon from war, the consequences of which are unpredictable,” he noted.

The PM added that the initiative is aimed at resuming implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which was approved after the conflict in 2006 and established a ceasefire on the border between Lebanon and Israel.

Israeli forces attacked a Lebanese army border post at El Edeis on December 5th, killing one soldier and wounding three others. Since the military escalation on the border between Lebanon and Israel began on October 8th, this is the first time that a Lebanese soldier has died as a result of Israeli shelling.
