Will Israeli-Lebanese talks begin within a month?

Israel, Lebanon
Israel expects to start U.S.-mediated talks within a month with Lebanon on maritime border issue, Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steintiz said on Wednesday, June 19.
 
Lebanon has not yet commented publicly on whether it would attend talks or on any possible timeline.
 
Formally at war since Israel’s 1948 founding, the neighbors have long disagreed on border demarcations in the eastern Mediterranean, an issue that gained prominence in the past decade when large deposits of natural gas were found there.
