Bahrain has offered to host peace talks between Israel and Palestine, raising hopes anew of resolving the conflict – often referred to as the world’s most intractable conflict.
Bahrain’s initiative is the latest in the series of attempts made to broker a two-state solution with an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel.
Israel Hayom reported that the peace process received a new vigour with HM King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa offering to host talks. The new development came amid a tripartite meeting of HM the King with Jordan’s King Abdullah II Bin Al-Hussein, UAE crown prince, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, in Abu Dhabi, Hayom reported.
Al Arabiya and Shehab news agency reported that the Palestinian ambassadors to Bahrain and UAE would be restored after they were called back over the two countries normalisation of ties with Israel.
