Aoun to Iraqi TV: Israel Not Permitted to Infringe on Lebanon Decision to Defend its Border

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

President Michel Aoun stressed in an interview on the Iraqi Alsumaria TV network on Friday that the current border dispute between Lebanon and Israel “does not allow Israel to cross the border because there is a Lebanese decision to defend these land and sea borders.”

The President said he raised with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson the problem of the conflict with Israel over Lebanon's maritime and land borders, and explained to him that "Lebanon has maps dating back to the 1920s proving its rights to its land. These maps are available in the hands of the entire world and can not be manipulated.”

On resolving the dispute, he considered “consulting experts in maritime boundaries under the sponsorship of the United Nations.”

In response to a question on the situation in Syria, President Aoun said that “involvement of international parties has complicated things,” and that a “solution lies in the hands of major countries through a Russian-US understanding."

On his official visit to Iraq, Aoun said he “carried friendship to the Iraqi people and officials,” pointing out that Lebanon has institutions that can contribute to the reconstruction of Iraq.

Aoun to Iraqi TV: Israel Not Permitted to Infringe on Lebanon Decision to Defend its Border

and what does that exactly mean?!

"Lebanon has maps dating back to the 1920s proving its rights to its land. These maps are available in the hands of the entire world and can not be manipulated.”

and do those maps include Chebaa Farms which would entitle you to open a dispute with your masters in Syria and Iran to reclaim the Farms as Lebanese territory?

He cannot ask his masters in damascus for the shebaa farms. It's an excuse to keep the iranian militia in Lebanon.

Dear Sionist, it even include the Houla valley given by the french to the british in 1932.
The real border is the Paulet Newcombe line but uneducated people ignore that.

Last night the Philippina maid torched my 85 y.o relative’s mattress... as she was sleeping in it. she survived because people in the street saw the flames. The old lady has Alzheimer among many other illnesses and her maid worked for her since the 90s. It’s insane.

The quisling president is his masters voice, echoing the words of the Ayatolla of Rockinrolla now live in Iraq. One can only hope he would stay there the nation does fine without him and has proven it.

With all due respects, can President Aoun please show exactly where Israel has or intends to infringe on a single square millimeter of sovereign Lebanese territory.
By the way even the UN catagorically states that Shabaa Frams are Syrian not Lebanese.
