EEZ com­plaint.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Lebanon has lodged a com­plaint with the United Na­tions over an agree­ment be­tween Cyprus and Is­rael de­mar­cat­ing an ex­clu­sive eco­nomic zone (EEZ) at the mar­itime bor­der be­tween the two East­ern Mediter­ranean coun­tries, ac­cord­ing to a re­port in Le­banese English-lan­guage news­pa­per The Daily Star. Le­banese For­eign Af­fairs and Im­mi­gra­tion Min­is­ter Ad­nan Man­sour re­port­edly sent a letter to UN Sec­re­tary-Gen­eral Ban Ki-moon, say­ing the agree­ment vi­o­lated “Lebanon’s sovereignty and eco­nomic rights and threat­ens peace and se­cu­rity in the area.” The Leviathan gas field, which lies within the EEZ, is one of the largest off­shore gas finds in the past decade but Lebanon claims that the field spills over into its ter­ri­tory.
