Negotiations Will Be Difficult, Issues Are Contentious

On September 1, President Barak Obama convened a meeting in Washington, D.C. to reinvigorate direct Israeli-Palestinian talks.  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and Jordan's King Abdullah joined President Barack Obama and the Quartet's Special Envoy to the Middle East Tony Blair at the White House. 

The following day, Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Abbas joined Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the State Department for the launch of bilateral talks.

The goal of these negotiations is to reach a framework agreement on Israeli-Palestinian peace within one year. 

The parties convened in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt on September 14-15 for a second round of talks, followed by discussions in Jerusalem.
