ANSAmed: “The democratic candidate for the White House, Barack Obama, guaranteed today to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) that if he was elected, he would be ”an important partner” in the peace process in the Middle East, a high-level Palestinian representative informed.
Revealing part of the contents of today’s meeting between Obama and Abbas in Ramallah, on which Obama himself has not released a statement yet, Saeb Erakat, one of the main Palestinian negotiators, told news agency AFP that the Illinois senator ”declared to support a peaceful solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and he will be an important partner within the peace process, from the first days of his presidency and he will not lose even an instant to reach a peace accord”. After his meeting with the PNA leadership, Obama left Ramallah and headed directly to Sderot, in southern Israel.”
