Libanees president Michel Aoun heeft een brief ontvangen van Amos Hochstein, VSA
lijnrechter bemiddelaar met voorstellen voor de definitieve vastlegging der maritieme grens tussen Israël en Libanon. Van vooringenomenheid of vriendjespolitiek is uiteraard geen sprake.
Op Wikipedia vindt u meer informatie over de levensloop van Amos Hochstein. We citeren enkele korte paragrafen waaruit zijn neutraliteitsgehalte mag blijken:
“In March 2017, he joined Tellurian, a private Houston-based LNG company, where he served as Senior Vice President Marketing until his departure in September of 2020. He serves on the boards of the Atlantic Council and U.S.-India Business Council. Hochstein is a former member of the supervisory board of Ukrainian Naftogaz, from which he resigned in October 2020 by writing an opinion piece that highlighted the return of sabotage in the form of corrupt forces.”
“Hochstein was born in Israel. His parents were American Jewish immigrants. He served in the Israel Defense Forces from 1992 to 1995. After finishing his army service Hochstein moved to Washington, D.C., to take up an internship on Capitol Hill.“
