Israel-Lebanon talks over maritime border demarcation must be completed within a short period if they are to succeed, the US mediator seeking to renew the negotiations says.

Senior adviser for energy security Amos Hochstein tells Al Hadath TV during a visit to Beirut that resolving the matter would help “alleviate Lebanon’s power shortage by allowing it to develop its offshore gas resources,” according to Reuters.
