NICKOLAY MLADENOV From the sidelines of the 70th UN General Assembly in New York, host Carol Castiel speaks with Nickolay Mladenov, UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, about prospects for renewing bilateral and regional talks. Mladenov, a Bulgarian diplomat who served as Bulgaria's Minister of Defense and Foreign Affairs, calls Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' recent assertion that Palestinians are no longer bound by the 1995 Oslo Peace Accords, an "alarm bell," and should, along with the uptick in violence in Jerusalem and the rise of radicalism emanating from conflicts in Syria and Iraq, be an incentive for bold initiatives to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and create a two-state solution.
