Lebanon to tell Hochstein it wants whole of Qana field

No written response has been prepared for U.S. mediator Amos Hochstein’s proposal and Lebanon will voice its remarks orally, Presidency sources said.

“We’re the ones who decide whether we will later submit a written response or not, seeing as this is a Lebanese decision and it is not for him to dictate on us what to do,” the sources added, in remarks to LBCI television.

The sources, however, noted that “Lebanon is willing to facilitate Hochstein’s shuttle mission, if he is an impartial mediator, based on the framework agreement.”

LBCI also reported that Lebanon is insisting on offshore Line 23 “with a deviation that grants Lebanon the entire Qana field.”

A member of the Lebanese negotiating team, who requested anonymity, meanwhile told the TV channel that “no one can get 100% of their rights.”
