Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati on Monday told the parliament that Lebanese citizens have the right to oppose Israel and respond to its attacks, Kan 11 News reported. Speaking at a meeting intended to seek the confidence of parliament to form an official government, Mikati pledged to work "for the liberation of the Lebanese territories occupied by Israel." At the same time, according to the report, he also said that Lebanon intends to resume talks with Israel, through US mediation, on maritime borders.

A new Lebanese government headed by Mikati was formed just several days ago after a 13-month impasse as the country grapples with one of the worst crises in its history. Mikati took on the task of forming a new government in late July, days after fellow veteran politician Saad Hariri threw in the towel. Last year, official discussions commenced between representatives of Israel and Lebanon, with the aim of reaching an agreement on their maritime border.
