Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed through telephone on Friday political developments in the region, Hariri's office said in a short statement.

It said that Hariri and Clinton discussed "the regional situation, and specifically on the current efforts to restart negotiations on the Palestinian-Israeli track."

The phone call between Hariri and Clinton came as Israel insisted it would not change its policy of building homes in East Jerusalem, keeping the Jewish state at odds with Washington on how to renew stalled peace talks with Palestinians.

It also comes after U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Michele Sison reiterated on Monday her country's support for an "independent" Lebanon.

Sison stressed that her country will not allow its efforts to achieve its goals in the Middle East come at the expense of its commitment to Lebanon.
