Aoun: Israel Construction of Separation Wall Opposes Stability Effortsإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
President Michel Aoun said Friday that Israel's construction of a separation cement wall along Lebanon's southern border “contradicts endeavors aiming to preserve stability.”
During a meeting with visiting UNIFIL Commander Major General Michael Beary, Aoun said: “Israel's construction of the wall along the Blue Line does not coincide with efforts to preserve stableness and security in the South.”
He asked Beary to dwell on Lebanon's reservations about the line mainly that Lebanon does not identify the Blue line as its definite border.
Israel began constructing concrete walls along several sections of Israel's northern border with Lebanon.
The Blue Line is a border demarcation between Lebanon and Israel published by the United Nations on 7 June 2000 for the purposes of determining whether Israel had fully withdrawn from Lebanon
Lebanon had expressed its reservation about the line and confirmed that identifying it was solely the responsibility of the United Nations and that they would respect the line as identified.
