Chatham House, London

Middle East and North Africa Programme

Participants

Jonas Gahr Støre, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Norway<br />
Chair: Dr Claire Spencer, Head, Middle East and North Africa Programme, Chatham House

Overview

2011 is slated to be an important crossroads in the Middle East peace process in view of the anticipated completion of the Fayyad Government's two-year plan for Palestinian state building by August next year, and the subsequent expiry of the one-year timeline set for the currently stalled negotiations between Israel and the PLO. Against this backdrop, Foreign Minister Støre will outline some of the hard choices the international community may have to make in the time ahead.

Jonas Gahr Støre has been Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs since 2005. Prior to that he was Secretary General of the Norwegian Red Cross and Working Chair of ECON Analysis.

This event will be under the Chatham House Rule.

Attendance is by invitation only.
