Veteran Middle East peace negotiators, Ambassador Dennis Ross (counselor and William Davidson Distinguished Fellow at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy) and Ghaith al Omari (Executive Director of the American Task Force on Palestine) discuss the framework of principles for the negotiations leading to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict soon to be unveiled by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. Drawing upon decades of experience, they will compare the “Kerry Plan” to previous peace proposals and analyze the likelihood of its adoption.
