US Ambassador Dan Shapiro adresses Israeli Palestinian peace process in Tel Aviv

February 24, 2014 18:28

Shapiro, "In summer 2013 Kerry became a bridge between Netanyahu and Abbas. Only believe news of peace process from Kerry."

Shapiro stated that both sides will need to negotiate for a framework basis and that it can be uncomfortable at times. Still, the ambassador said that, "The framework will ensure Israeli security, mutual recognition, a viable Palestinian state, and a resolution to all the core issues."

Shapiro went on to say that he started his career in 1993 when Oslo was signed and that he believed he had missed a last opportunity to work on the peace process. "Unfortunately I was wrong," Shapiro said.
