BEIRUT, Sept. 10 (Xinhua) — A U.S. diplomat reassured Tuesday that U.S. is ready to resume talks over the border demarcation between Lebanon and Israel, Lebanon Presidency’s website reported.
U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs David Schenker gave his remarks during his meeting with President Michel Aoun at Baabda Palace.
President Aoun called upon the U.S. to facilitate border demarcation with Israel especially when there remains only a few pending points with regard to this issue.
Aoun also urged the U.S. diplomat to help Lebanon in securing a safe return for Syrian refugees to their homeland.
“Financial support must be offered to Syrians inside Syria to encourage them to return to their country,” he said.
Schenker arrived in Lebanon on Monday for a two-day official visit where he met with Lebanese officials to discuss several topics including the demarcation of maritime borders between Lebanon and Israel.
