Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri asked UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to put more pressure on Israel, in a meeting on Sunday in New York, Reuters reported.

Hariri "requested the utmost pressure on Israel to cease its violations in the air, on land and at sea," a Lebanese official told Reuters. "He also said Lebanon is relying on the United Nations to prevent Israeli infringement of Lebanon's exclusive economic zone, including regarding oil and gas resources."

A spokesman for Ki-moon, however, said that UN Resolution 1701 does not cover maritime borders or gas and oil reserves, according to the report.
