Caretaker Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Minister, Gebran Bassil, on Monday underlined that Lebanon is committed to the international law and resolutions, deploring Israel for disrespecting the international organization and resolutions.

“Israel did not respect Resolution 1701 and has violated our land, air and sea 1,417 times in the last eight months,” Bassil said during his meeting with the accredited ambassadors to Lebanon and diplomatic missions, who visited him at the Villas Boustros upon his invitation.

Minister Bassil intended to meet with the accredited ambassadors at Villa Boustros in order to refute the alleged claims by Israeli enemy Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, about the existence of missile depots near the International Rafic Hariri Airport.

“Israel seeks through these allegations to justify a new assault on Lebanon,” Bassil told ambassadors, asking them to join him on an inspection visits on the Israeli-alleged missile sites.

Bassil also emphasized that Lebanon won’t accept that the United Nations General Assembly be used as a platform to assault Lebanon’s sovereignty.

The Minister underlined Lebanon’s right to defend itself and use all the legitimate resistance means to liberate its land from the Israeli occupation.

Bassil also stressed that Lebanon does not accept the presence of rocket platforms in the vicinity of Beirut airport, stressing that Lebanon is a country which wants to live in peace and defend itself.
