RAMALLAH, (WAFA) – U.S. president Barrack Obama, in a letter sent to President Mahmoud abbas, affirmed the U.S. commitment for the establishment of the state of Palestine living in peace alongside the state of Israel.
“It was a pleasure to welcome you to the white house in March, and I send my thanks for your kind gifts,” said Obama.
