  • The two sides held their first round of talks on Oct. 14

JERUSALEM: Israel and Lebanon on Wednesday launched a second round of US-mediated talks over their disputed sea border, an Israeli statement said.

Delegations from the long-time foes reconvened at a UN peacekeeper base to “assess the possibility of reaching an agreement on demarcating the maritime border … in a manner enabling the cultivation of natural resources in the area,” Israel’s Energy Ministry said.

The two sides held their first round of talks on Oct. 14 and are expected to hold another round on Thursday, the statement said.
