Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat hailed on Saturday the reactivation of efforts with regard to Lebanon's oil and gas wealth, after a dispute over excavation between the Free Patriotic Movement and the AMAL Movement was reportedly settled a day earlier.
“It seems that the oil file which has been pending for years will finally be tackled,” said Jumblat via his Twitter account.
“In order to preserve this national wealth and benefit from it, it may be useful that we take advantage of remarks made by an expert in the oil field Nicolas Sarkis,” he added.
Jumblat stressed that it is crucial that the file is handled with transparency by the legal and financial figures, he said: “A transparent legal and financial management here is crucial. It is better that things remain clear because the issue can not endure confusion.”
