Barak: '50-50 chance of Israel settlement deal'

Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak, who has been leading Israel's negotiating team in New York, says he thinks there is a better than even chance of the peace process continuing despite concerns over West Bank settlements.

In an exclusive interview with the BBC, Mr Barak said he believed there was a 50-50 chance of reaching a deal with Palestinians about Israel's settlement moratorium.
