Lapid says draft Lebanese maritime border deal guards Israel's interests

Yuval Karni|
Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid gave a preliminary nod on Sunday to a draft U.S.-brokered deal demarcating a maritime border with Lebanon, telling his cabinet the proposal would fully safeguard Israel's security and commercial interests.
Lapid also voiced openness to Lebanon producing natural gas in a disputed Mediterrean field if Israel got royalties from it.
Israeli approval of the draft would await legal consultations, Lapid said. The draft is also being studied in Lebanon.
