Lebanon hopes U.S. will resume mediation in border disputes with Israel

Lebanon's president said he hopes the United States will resume mediation efforts to resolve a land and sea border dispute with Israel, after the man who had been leading them changed jobs.


President Michel Aoun made the comments, reported in state news agency NNA, after meeting the new U.S. assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs, David Schenker.


"Several points had already been agreed on (as Satterfield departed) and there remain only a few sticking points in the terms of negotiations," Aoun said. Satterfield last month became the U.S. ambassador to Turkey.
