Last European attempt to relaunch the peace process

(B2) Here we go again. The High Representative is returning to the Middle East to try to convince Israelis, Palestinians and Arabs to find a way to resume direct negotiations on the peace process. She is expected to be in Cairo on Wednesday to meet the leaders of the Arab League as well as the Palestinian leader, then in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv to meet Israeli officials. This is one of the last-hour attempts by the Europeans to influence the Palestinian desire to have statehood recognized by the UN General Assembly.
