A Jordanian diplomat and politician, Ambassador Muasher opened Jordan’s first embassy in Israel in 1995. From 1997 to 2002, he served in Washington as Ambassador, negotiating the first free trade agreement between the United States and an Arab nation. He then returned to Jordan to serve as Foreign Minister and then Deputy Prime Minister. Ambassador Muasher was at the Jordanian Senate until March 2007 when he joined the World Bank as Senior Vice President for External Affairs. Most recently, he wrote a book called The Arab Center. We talk with Ambassador Muasher about the Palestinian-Israeli peace talks and his case for taking a regional approach.
