Former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Martti Ahtisaari of Finland and former Algerian Foreign Minister Lakhdar Brahimi talked about the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. They discussed the topic earlier in the day with Secretary of State Kerry. Former President Carter acknowledged that conditions are far more difficult now than during his presidency. Lakhdar Brahimi, the UN-Arab League envoy to Syria, also spoke about Syria. He refused to characterize either the Syrian regime or the opposition as ‘winning’ in their civil war but said that there can be no military victory but there must be a political resolution.
“Can the Two-State Solution Be Saved?” was a presentation by The Elders, a group of independent leaders founded by Nelson Mandela. It was hosted by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. close
