Arctic should not be arena of conflicting interests (Russian lawmaker)

“The Arctic is a unique region, so, whatever happens on the continent, we must be able to reach compromises,” Vladimir Torlopov said...

The Arctic should be saved from being an arena of conflicting interests of rival countries, Vladimir Torlopov, a members of the international committee of Russia’s Federation Council upper parliament house, told Itar-Tass on Wednesday after a meeting of the Standing Committee of Parliamentarians of the Arctic Region.

“The Arctic is a unique region, so, whatever happens on the continent, we must be able to reach compromises,” he said. “Obviously, the Arctic is a future place of difficult solution. Everybody agrees that a consensus is needed. But how this can be done is a problem. Russia is sparing no efforts to have all problems in the Arctic settled in the spirit of cooperation, through talks.”

He said he was satisfied with the friendly atmosphere at the meeting, which “discussed solely issues linked with the Arctic region - the economy, ecology, interests of the indigenous peoples and conservation of bio resources.”

Participants, according to Torlopov, showed interest to a draft international agreement on security of transport and tourist vessels in the Arctic Russia was working on.
The meeting was generally dedicated to agreeing an agenda for the next Conference of Parliamentarians of the Arctic Region due to be held in September in Canada.

Lebanon slams Israel's intent to demarcate maritime border

BEIRUT, Dec. 21 (Xinhua) -- Lebanon's caretaker Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour warned Saturday that Israel's unilateral decision to demarcate the maritime border (EEZ)with Lebanon would threaten stability in the region.

Mansour said in a statement "this is a very dangerous decision if adopted by Israel, and it threatens stability, security and peace in the region.

He said that this action by Israel does not produce any legal obligations for Lebanon.


He explained "Israel's step does not produce any legal obligations for Lebanon as if it never happened," considering it a violation of international law and the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.

He said "article 74 of the corresponding law stipulates that the accord on demarcation of adjacent and facing economic zones (EEZ) is based on International Law, just as article 38 of the Statute of the International Court of Justice says."

The caretaker minister urged Lebanese factions to fill the vacuum in the state's institutions in order for Lebanon to assume its national responsibility and face "Israel's new violation" with all legal means.

He added "Israel is held fully responsible for all consequences that such a step might produce."

Israel said it is seeking to demarcate the maritime border (EEZ) in the area disputed with Lebanon through a draft law that will be proposed at the Knesset.

Lebanon and Israel are bickering over a maritime zone (EEZ) that consists of about 854 square kilometers, which boasts suspected energy reserves worth billions of dollars.  http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/world/2013-12/22/c_132986303.htm
