New energy minister meets US negotiator over Lebanese maritime talks

Energy Minister Karine Elharrar met on Wednesday with John Desrocher, the American mediator in the indirect talks between Israel and Lebanon over their disputed maritime border.

“Despite Israel’s strong legal case, we are ready to consider creative solutions to bring this issue to an end,” Elharrar, who took office this week, told Desrocher of the ongoing indirect negotiations between Lebanon and Israel.

Elharrar was also joined on Wednesday by Michael Ratney, the interim head of the US Embassy in Israel, as well as Udi Adiri, director-general of the Energy Ministry.

During the meeting, held in the Energy Ministry’s office in Jerusalem, Elharrar stressed that the ongoing negotiations with Lebanon are of the utmost importance despite the recent government transition, and said she is being kept up to date by Adiri, the head of Israel’s delegation to the talks.
