WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) released the following statement applauding the news that Israel and Lebanon have reached an agreement, brokered by the United States, which resolves their decades-long maritime boundary dispute.
“I congratulate Israel and Lebanon for signing this agreement and the Biden Administration for their diplomatic efforts facilitating it,” said Senator Rosen. “The U.S.-brokered deal between Israel and Lebanon will end a decades-long maritime dispute, strengthen Israel’s security, lower the risk of war, and contribute to regional stability and economic success. American global leadership and diplomacy can help bring about a more peaceful world, from facilitating new partnerships for Israel in the Middle East to promoting a two-state solution with the Palestinians. As the historic Abraham Accords have demonstrated, cooperation with Israel benefits the entire region.”
