Hochstein: When extracting natural gas, we will make sure that Lebanon has 24 hours of feeding

The American mediator, Amos Hochstein, declared that he believes that the Lebanese deserve a state that works for the benefit of its citizens.

Hochstein said via an interview with MTV: “US President Joe Biden was grateful that French President Emmanuel Macron and the French government were helping during the course of these negotiations. There is no doubt that France is interested in what is happening in Lebanon, and I met with representatives of the French government on a daily basis while I was in Lebanon, and we thank them for their help.”

He added: “The Lebanese are happy that the decision was taken because they deserve hope and an opportunity for growth, and we, as the United States, will do our best to support the goals of the Lebanese” adding: “When natural gas is extracted, we will make sure that Lebanon has 24 hours of electrical supply, first of all, and the matter will be done quickly.”

Hochstein pointed out that ” the chances of conflict will decrease and the country will become safe and companies will invest in Lebanon and there will be job opportunities, so I think we will witness a change, immediately or at a rapid rate .”
