A tripartite meeting between the United Nations' peacekeeping mission in south Lebanon, the Lebanese Army and the Israeli military was held Thursday as U.S. mediation proceeded in Beirut over Lebanese-Israeli border disputes.In 2011, U.S. diplomat Frederick Hoff reportedly proposed for Lebanon to acquire 550 square kilometers of the disputed 860 square kilometers that Lebanon insists is part of its maritime territory, and abandon the remaining part to Israel.During another tripartite meeting in Naqoura last week, Lebanon clarified that if Israel wanted to build the wall inside the occupied Palestinian territory, it had no objections, ministerial sources told The Daily Star at the time.
