These negotiations were frozen after Tel Aviv turned down Beirut’s counter-proposal, claiming one thousand 430 square kilometers in the Mediterranean sea instead of 860 claimed at first.

Both parties held two rounds of talks, without speaking to each other directly though, while the US mission brings Israeli points of view to the Lebanese and they reply through UN representatives.

There is evidence that in the zone of dispute great reserves of natural gas and oil can be found where Israel already set platforms whose production cover domestic consumption and export needs.

Lebanese, going through their worst economic crisis in decades, lay their hopes in detecting enough of such hydrocarbons to come afloat from their decline.
