Berri says border deal draft meets Lebanese demands

Speaker Nabih Berri said Saturday that the draft final agreement submitted by U.S. mediator Amos Hochstein for sea border demarcation with Israel is positive and "in principle meets the Lebanese demands that refuse any impact for the sea agreement on the land border."

In remarks to Asharq al-Awsat newspaper Berri added that the draft consists of "10 English-language pages and requires examination before a final response can be given."

The Speaker also said that the agreement would be signed at the Naqoura border point.
