President Michel Aoun on Tuesday denied accusations that he has given up Lebanon’s rights in the maritime border talks with Israel.
“Everything that is being said about giving up Lebanon’s sea border rights is baseless, because those talking do not know what was said in the negotiations,” Aoun said.
The talks “will preserve Lebanon’s rights and natural resources and this is what’s important,” he added.
The President also lamented that some parties are “attacking” him personally for “combatting corruption.”
“Some are trying to depict things as being a personal or sectarian issue, although the truth is totally the opposite,” Aoun went on to say.
