Reviving Middle East Peace Talks

Reviving Middle East Peace Talks

Kojo explores the art of international negotiation and finds out what could set the newly launched Middle East peace talks apart from past failed attempts.

After years of inaction, Israelis and Palestinians recently agreed to return to the negotiating table. With all so-called "final status" issues — such as borders, refugee rights and the status of Jerusalem — on the table, many onlookers are guardedly optimistic. We explore what's at stake for both sides, as well as the negotiating tactics that could spell slow success, or quick doom, for this new round of talks.
