BEIRUT - Lebanon's outgoing President Michel Aoun said on Thursday that a U.S.-brokered deal to delineate the maritime border with Israel would prevent war and the full status of the southern border would be resolved through "dialogue."

Aoun, speaking in a pre-recorded interview aired hours after he signed onto the agreement, insisted the accord did not constitute a peace agreement with Israel.
