Robert Siegel speaks with Maen Rashid Areikat, the chief of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) delegation in Washington, who is, in effect, the Palestinian ambassador to the United States. Ariekat says Israel and the United States wanted Egypt to be directly involved with the talks to bring about a cease fire over Gaza.
