Crossing Divides: How Israeli-Palestinian peace accord was prepared

In September 1993, on the lawn of the White House in Washington, an agreement was signed to bring about peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

In the months leading up to the historic handshake between Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, Norway had been instrumental in the negotiations.
