New quest for peace at Camp David

SHARE New quest for peace at Camp David

President Clinton leads Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, left, and Palestinian President Yasser Arafat to the Laurel cabin on the grounds of Camp David for the first three-way peace talks of the Mideast summit Tuesday. The summit is aimed at resolving the core issues of the 52-year-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict, including the status of Jerusalem, the borders and nature of a Palestinian state and the future of Jewish settlers and Palestinian refugees. Clinton said Barak and Arafat "face profound and wrenching questions" that will require compromises from both sides. Camp David, located in Maryland, is where Egypt and Israel made peace in September 1978, and the Laurel cabin was the site of many of the meetings.
