Global Talks:
Today we are talking about:
We have become accustomed to the Middle East being a place of instability and unrest. The Syrian conflict is in its 7th year, but some of the images that surfaced this year in various media shook the world and made us more and more aware of the scale of human tragedy in Syria. While the tragedy is most sharply felt in Syria, Yemen less in the spotlight, is also undergoing a devastating humanitarian catastrophe, where children are dying a slow death by starvation. Iraq is still rebuilding , Iran is off the blacklist but still not out ouf the woods financially or politically and Israel and Palestine could be could be close to a two state reality albeit without a two state solution.
What lies ahead for The Middle East in the coming year? And was there any real progress towards peace this past year? We take a look at these questions on Today, as we look at the the Middle East.
