In connection with the disputed sea border, Lebanon and Israel launched talks in a brief meeting on October 14 which was held outdoors under blue canvas covers near the two countries’ land border. The lead Lenanese negotiator described the move as “the first step on a thousand-mile journey”.
The United States, which has pushed for years for negotiations to resolve the dispute between the two Gulf Arab states initiated the talks and brokered deals last month to establish full ties with Israel, in a major Middle East realignment.
The United States and United Nations termed the talks as “productive” while Israel’s Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz said “the Israeli delegation would push ahead with the talks “to give the process a chance”.
