Lebanon, Israel held 'productive' border talks - U.S. and UN statement

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanon and Israel held productive talks on Wednesday on their disputed maritime border, the United States and United Nations said after they helped mediate a meeting of the long-time foes.

“During this initial meeting, the representatives held productive talks and reaffirmed their commitment to continue negotiations later this month,” a joint U.S. and UN statement said after the one-hour meeting. The next meeting is planned for Oct. 28.
