Greetings from the I-Desk...
Hala is off tonight. Isha will get things started in the early edition of the International Desk, then Michael Holmes is making his debut in the later edition.
Tonight, we're touching on a long list of developing stories, including the Middle East peace process taking center stage at the White House. President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are meeting. We are expecting their comments, during the early edition of I-Desk, and a complete wrap-up of what's next in the process, during the later edition.
Also, what do you think? Is the "two state solution" the best way forward? That's tonight's I-Desk online poll... Look below and give us your thoughts.
And, we're also closely following the situation in Sri Lanka. An LTTE leader was killed by Sri Lankan forces. We have the latest from Colombo, plus the U.N.'s reaction. What is the worldly body doing, if anything, to stop the violence? We'll find out for you.
All that, plus a rare live report from beautiful St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow. You don't want to miss it!!
See you at the I-Desk.
