'New horizon' for Israeli negotiations


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has, for the first time, endorsed the creation of a Palestinian state. But the attached criteria - complete demilitarisation and the recognition of Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people - have angered Palestinian officials. Middle East correspondent Jeremy Bowen, Aaron David Miller, who served six US secretaries of state as an advisor on Arab-Israeli negotiations, and Ron Prosor, Israeli ambassador in London, discusses what the speech means for the peace process.
