Zalman Shoval, Israeli ambassador to the United States, spoke to an audience at the U.S. Institute of Peace on the national security of Israel in the Middle East. Once a strong follower of former Israeli leader Moshe Dayan, Ambassador Shoval said Israel would continue to pursue a path to peace in the Middle East although initial hopes for great advances towards peace after the Persian Gulf war were over-optimistic. He said regional security arrangements seemed doubtful after the war, particularly concerning hostile countries such as Syria. He called for the Arab world to change its attitude toward Israel concerning its national sovereignty as the essential first step on the road to peace. He went on to discuss the possibility for peace in the region, but said Israel would not participate in any treaty that limited its actions concerning its defense. close
