What can nations do to support Mid-East peace?
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called on Palestinian leaders to continue peace talks despite the end of Israel's partial freeze on settlement building. What can states do to help the situation?
In a statement moments after the freeze expired at midnight local time on Sunday (2200 GMT), Mr Netanyahu asked his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas to continue seeking a "historic" deal.
US President Barack Obama has urged Israel to extend the moratorium, saying it "made a difference on the ground, and improved the atmosphere for talks".
What would you ask your leaders to do to support peace? Is there anything that countries can do to make a difference in the Middle East? Does Barack Obama's push for peace have any chance of succeeding? Do you live in the Middle East?
