OSLO ACCORDS, THE PEACE TRAP
Behind the major historical events of the Mediterranean world
An episode from the series BORDERS
Military occupation, attacks, violence, assassinations. After more than forty years of conflict at the turn of the 1990s, relations between Israelis and Palestinians are at their lowest.
In this context, a series of official negotiations involving representatives of both parties is organized in Washington to try to find a way out of this crisis. But the real diplomatic game is played elsewhere.
Far from the cameras, secret meetings between emissaries of the Israeli government and close collaborators of Yasser Arafat were held in Oslo throughout 1993. Behind the scenes, under the leadership of Norwegian diplomacy, the parties tried to negotiate a political solution with the ambition of changing the history of the Middle East forever.
