Dr. Marwan Muasher, currently the Amman-based Vice President for Studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, was Jordan's foreign minister, deputy prime minister, information minister, Jordan's ambassador to the United States and its first ambassador to Israel. He was deeply involved in the peace process, and helped compose the Arab Peace Initiative.
We met him in Amman as part of Americans for Peace Now's study tour to the region.
This episode is an edited version of our conversation with him. Due to technical difficulties, questions asked by members of our group could not be recorded. Some of Dr. Muasher's comments are in reply to questions that are not in this recording, which sometimes makes his remarks a bit difficult to follow.
Dr. Muasher, recorded on November 5th 2019, refers to meetings that our group was to have the next day (in his words "tomorrow") with Jordanian government officials.
