Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesperson Yigal Palmor said that if the new Lebanese cabinet recognizes the existence of the Israeli state then “negotiations will be launched immediately,” the al-Rai Kuwaiti newspaper reported on Thursday from the German Press Agency-DPA.

He noted that the Israeli Foreign Ministry statement, issued on Wednesday, “doesn’t signify a call for immediate negotiations.”

The newspaper said that Palmor called on the Lebanese government to adopt the negotiations approach.

“If Lebanon recognizes Israel’s existence and decided to negotiate with it and solve disputes, then we will definitely negotiate with it,” the spokesman stressed.

On Wednesday, the Israeli foreign ministry hoped that Lebanon's new government will respect international laws and borders and contribute to regional stability.

"Israel expects the Lebanese government to apply United Nations Security Council resolutions, in particular resolution 1701, and it calls for settling all outstanding issues through negotiations and mutual respect," the statement added.
