At the meeting, Dr. Khalil Shiqaqi, Director of the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research, talked about recent trends in the Palestinian public opinion regarding the peace process. Then, Dr. Nabil Amro, former Minister of Information, talked about prospects of ending the Palestinian political split and lifting the siege in Gaza. Finally, Dr. Husam Zomlot, Deputy Commissioner of the Fatah Committee for International Relation, talked about recent peace initiatives and international efforts in light of recent local, regional and international political developments.
