UN envoy to address Lebanon’s Demarcation of Maritime borders

Share:

U.N. Special Coordinator for Lebanon Michael Williams announced on Monday following talks with Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour that he will address the issue of Lebanon’s demarcation of its maritime border at the United Nations on Thursday.

“Lebanon must have access to its natural resources and must benefit from them and I want to see there is a law on exploration and exploitation fully implemented and foreign oil companies coming to Lebanon.” Williams said

Williams is scheduled to head to New York on Tuesday where he will discuss the sixth report on the implementation of U.N. Security Council resolution 1701 at the international organization’s headquarters on Thursday.

“It’s not unusual in many countries in the world to have disputes over maritime boundaries,” Williams said

    I think sooner is better, before any ‘neighbors’ start drilling.  It’s really hard to undo anything after it’s ‘de facto’ in place.  Hurry up, Lebanon!

    My brother works for the U.N office in San Diego. He told me the rumor is that unless Lebanon agree on a direct pipe to Europe pumping natural gas  so the EU can lower its dependance on Russian natural gas (Russia provides the EU with 75% of it natural gas) we will have problems. The digging and serving will also have to be done by a western nation. Dont get me wrong it would be great if Lebanon was able to provide the EU with 20 to 30% of it natural gas because it would give us leverage in U.N votes and things of that nature. The Israeli government is also said to be willing to provide the EU with natural gas. The problem is no one trust HA or Lebanon as long as HA is around in its current structure (weapons). I think peace is close but we may have to deal with a few problems and it may take a few more years. Its said the gas reserves between Lebanon and Israel are the largest found to date. on the other hand the oil found between Lebanon is Israel is not too significant. I think the Russian support for Syria is mainly based on the fact that when Syria falls HA will be weakened dramatically and the deal can happen witch will cause the Russians to lose major revenues and influence  witch they only recently started getting. Remember a few years back Russia cut gas supplies to the EU because of a political dispute (I think it was the U.S missile systems that were supposed to be placed in the Czech Rep) and people in Poland, Ukraine and other poor nation without reserves started freezing to death. The EU had a reserve but it would only last 6 months and the Russians cut supplies for 4 months until they got what they wanted. The Chinese on the other hand want to handle it or have Iran service and dig so they can trade weapons for oil and gas mainly, like they do with Iran already.

      Yes … Russia and China have their own agendas. China wants Russian oil/gas too … but Russia wants them to pay for the pipeline; which would be so long there’d probably be constant polluting even without Tibetans bombing it. 😉

      P.S if Iran handles the oil and gas projects in Lebanon the weapons traded would not only go to the Army. HA see an opportunity to get unlimited support from a country with a U.N Veto witch will help with future STL and other issues and unlimited training and weapons from China. HA wants the Gas and Oil for one reason! More power and more global support.
