Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, said on Sunday that Israel must decide between "peace or settlements".

On Tuesday's Riz Khan we ask: What concessions need to be made for direct talks between the Israelis and Palestinians to move forward?

Anand Naidoo sits in for Riz Khan.

Joining the programme is Mustafa Barghouti, a Palestinian politician and human rights activist, Daniel Levy, the co-director of the Middle East Task Force at the New America Foundation, and Ghaith al-Omari, the advocacy director at the American Task Force on Palestine.
