Lebanon submits letter to UN after Israel grants offshore contract to Halliburton

Lebanon has submitted a letter of protest to the United Nations and the Security Council after Israel granted US oilfield services group Halliburton an offshore drilling contract in the Mediterranean.

Lebanon's representative to the UN, Amal Mudallali, submitted the letter to both UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the President of the Security Council, Ireland’s representative to the United Nations, Geraldine Byrne Nason, calling on the UNSC to "ensure that the drilling evaluation works are not located in a disputed area between Lebanon and Israel, in order to avoid any attack on Lebanon's rights and sovereignty."

The letter also called for efforts to "prevent any future drilling in the disputed areas and to avoid steps that may pose a threat to international peace and security."
