Israeli and Lebanese negotiating teams met for the first time in six months on Tuesday to negotiate the countries’ maritime border. The indirect talks at the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) base in Naquora on the Israel-Lebanon border took place over six hours. At the end of the talks, the Israeli negotiating team updated Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz and held discussions on their next steps. Energy Ministry Director-General Udi Adiri led the Israeli delegation, which also included high-level representatives of the Foreign Ministry and IDF. The meeting was mediated by former US ambassador to Algeria John Desrocher. “The goal of the delegation in the meetings,” Steinitiz’s spokesman said before the latest round of talks, “is to examine the possibility of reaching an agreement on setting the maritime border between the countries and to find a solution that will allow for the development of natural resources in the region for the welfare of residents of the region.”
