Lebanon said it would start demarcating the maritime borders with the Cypriot Government on Friday after finalizing demarcation with Syria.

Deputy Parliament Speaker Elias Bou Saab announced it after a meeting between Lebanon's President Michel Aoun and a delegation from the Cyrpus. They travelled to Lebanon to discuss the issue of maritime borders.

Saab said the meeting discussed the unresolved issues between the sides on the maritime border, especially the demarcation of the northern maritime borders, adding that these issues will be pending until the demarcation with Syria is completed.

On Jan. 17, 2007, Lebanon and the Cypriot administration signed an agreement to delimit their exclusive economic zones and invest in fuel resources.
