NNA - The Tele Liban General Directorate issued on Tuesday the following statement:

"Based on a decision by Minister of Information, Melhem Riachy, the administration of Tele Liban has decided to broadcast the Lebanese national team's football matches at the AFC Asian Cup taking place in the United Arab Emirates through the satellite channels of Tele Liban, as of Wednesday night which will feature a match between Lebanon and Qatar.

Tele Liban offers its apologies for not being able to air the Asian Cup matches in full because of lack of agreement with the broadcasting company which requested large sums of money. The TV will only be airing the matches in which Lebanon's national team will participate."
