October, 18 2022
Washington, D.C.

October 18, 2022 - ATFL and MEI hosted a special conversation with US Special Envoy for Energy Affairs Amos Hochstein and Lebanese Deputy Speaker Elias Bou Saab to discuss what made it possible for Israel and Lebanon to reach an agreement, mediated by the United States, on a mutually recognized maritime boundary; how it benefits all involved parties; and what lies ahead. The agreement is the culmination of efforts that have been in play since 2003 and which were revived under the Biden Administration two years ago.
