The article reports that Qatar is leading efforts to revive the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative. The 2013 version of the initiative has reportedly done without the demand contained in the 2002 version for Israel to withdraw to the 1967 borders in exchange for comprehensive peace. In place of this provision, Qatar is proposing comparable and mutually agreed minor exchanges of land. Qatar is also said to have refrained from mentioning the issue of Palestinians' right of return.
