Shea briefs Aoun on progress in Hochstein’s talks with Israel
U.S. ambassador Dorothy Shea briefed Friday President Michel Aoun on the outcome of U.S. mediator Amos Hochstein’s talks with the Israelis and the progress that has been achieved, the Presidency said.
Also on Friday, a media report said that Israel's response suggests selling to Lebanon Israel’s small share in the Qana offshore field.
U.S. State Department spokesman Ned Price had announced, earlier this week, that Hochstein’s conversations last week with Israeli counterparts were “productive” and have “advanced the objective of narrowing differences between the two sides.”
Deputy Speaker Elias Bou Saab considered the statement as a “positive” sign.
