BEIRUT: Future bloc leader MP Fouad Siniora urged Lebanon and Cyprus Tuesday to work toward a resolution over the boundaries of Lebanon’s Exclusive Economic Zone. “I think that it is possible to make certain progress toward resolving the conflict in a way that serves the interests of both countries,” Siniora said, calling on the two countries to cooperate and continue working on the issue. Siniora made his comments following a meeting between a delegation of the Future bloc and Cypriot Speaker Yiannakis Omirou, who was on the final day of his visit to Lebanon. For his part, Omirou said that during the meeting, “there was an exchange of views on the bilateral agreement on the EEZ of the two countries, in addition to means of cooperation to benefit from exploiting natural resources in the sea between Lebanon and Cyprus.” Lebanon maintains that an Israeli-Cypriot bilateral agreement violates Lebanon’s maritime borders, with the Israeli EEZ overlapping on a roughly 850-square-kilometer stretch of sea the Lebanon considers within its borders.
