Hezbollah leader warns against new US mediator with Israel

The leader of Lebanon's militant Hezbollah group, Hassan Nasrallah, says a U.S. official visiting Beirut to mediate between Lebanon and Israel over a maritime border dispute is a "friend of Israel."


Nasrallah urged Lebanese officials to negotiate from a point of strength with U.S. Assistant Secretary of State David Schenker.


President Michel Aoun on Tuesday received Schenker, who is on his first visit to Lebanon since taking the post earlier this year.
