The current Secretary of the State, Condoleezza Rice, is looking forward to the peace talks with Middle East officials this next month. She has been so interested in the talks, in fact, that she has been looking through past histories of other talks in order to come up with ideas of effective talks for the meeting. She has met with past president Jimmy Carter, who offered her ideas on tactics needed for the peace movement.
In 1978, President Carter worked with the Jewish and Arab nations at Camp David in the hopes that there would be peace talks among the two parties. The talks became effective when the violence was halted, and there was a peace between the two nations for quite some time.
Condoleezza Rice has also talked with former President Bill Clinton, who, in 1994, was active in the Iranian and Jordan peace talks. This was a positive effort between the parties, and resulted in fewer conflicts. Ms. Rice is hoping that she will be able to aid the counties during the peace talks, and hope that there will be peace in the immediate future. In addition to this, Rice has also asked for information about past studies in the US negations, courtesy of the country’s state historians.
The information that is provided is hoped to be beneficial for Ms. Rice for her talks next month, with the effects to last into the future. There are many peace negations that are occurring now, but with Condoleezza’s assistance, this should be prolonged even further.
