The chance of peace being reached between Israel and the Palestinians is far lower now than when she left office, Former US secretary of state Condoleezza Rice said Tuesday in an interview with The Associated Press.

“When you look at where we are now, we’re a long, long way back from where we were,” Rice said during the interview.

A new memoir by Rice will be released Tuesday, but the lengthy book already raised uproars in Israel and abroad before it hit the shelves.

Rice’s description of the failure of the 2008 peace talks demonstrated key silences regarding American understanding of the Palestinian position, as detailed in papers leaked to the press earlier this year.
