He said Beirut is ready for talks with Israel to define borders and is waiting for a response from the United States, adding that the negotiations should continue in Naqoura under the UN auspices.
Earlier, Israeli Ambassador to Moscow Gary Koren told Sputnik that Tel Aviv was holding talks also with Russia and other parties about the situation around a disputed gas field in the eastern Mediterranean.
However, Lebanon’s Prime Minister Saad Hariri emphasized during talks with US Secretary of State in February that his country has the right to explore and develop potential oil and gas reserves in its territorial waters.
Israeli Minister of National Infrastructure, Energy and Water Resources Yuval Steinitz said earlier that Tel Aviv was ready to resolve differences with Lebanon by diplomatic means.
