'Moment ripe' for peace talks
Watch part two
US Middle East envoy, George Mitchell, is on the first leg of his Middle East
tour aiming at revitalising the Arab-Israeli peace process.
After stopping off in Cairo, he will meet Israeli leaders this afternoon and
will talk to Palestinian leaders in the West Bank on Thursday. However, he will
not be going to Gaza or meeting Hamas officials.
According to Barak Obama, the US president, the "moment is ripe" for peace
talks in the Middle East.
Mitchell has embarked on what Obama calls a "listening tour"; the US will be
listening to Middle East leaders instead of dictating to them.
Obama has reflected a more balanced stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
and this is reflected in his choice of Mitchell as Middle East envoy.
A former senator and experienced mediator, Mitchell was the man who helped
bring the Northern Ireland conflict to an end. Will he be the man to achieve
peace in the Middle East?
Our guests today are David Mack, US deputy assistant secretary of state for
Near East affairs and a former Ambassador to the UAE; Khalid Safouri, a
political consultant at Meridian strategies; and also Ian Black. He is the
Middle East editor at the British Newspaper The Guardian.
