Foreign Ministry: The letter deposited by Lebanon to the Security Council is not confidential

In an issued statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants on Sunday, it commented on the recently circulated news in the media regarding a letter submitted by Lebanon’s delegate to the United Nations in New York in response to the Israeli letter objecting to the Lebanese licensing cycle in Lebanon’s exclusive economic zone, whereby it was insinuated that this is a “leaked secret document”.

The Lebanese Foreign Ministry clarified herein that “the letter addressed by Lebanon to the UN Security Council is not a confidential document, but rather an official paper issued and circulated to all Council members as a document of the Security Council under the number S/2022/84 dated February 2, 2022, and was duly published according to the applied norms.”
