Obama Cautiously Hopeful for Mideast Peace

Thursday, September 02, 2010

After a 20-month hiatus, leaders from Israel and Palestine have come together at the White House to engage in a new round of peace talks. President Obama met individually with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday. Obama said he is hopeful that a peace agreement can be reached in the next year, but the talks have already hit hurdles that may be difficult to overcome.

We talk with Kim Ghattas, State Department correspondent for our partner the BBC about the status of the peace talks.
