On Tuesday, September 15th the Geneva Initiative released a book of annexes which was hand-delivered by our representatives to Israeli President, Shimon Peres. The same book will also be presented to Palestinian President Abbas upon his return from the States.
 
As GI Director-General explained in several interviews, “the book is targeted at three groups: decision-makers and negotiators who can utilize its content; the Israeli and Palestinian people who are skeptic about the feasibility of ever reaching and agreement and the international community – which can utilize the data to pick the most suitable role and find the best way to increase involvement towards reaching a peace agreement.
