George Mitchell
Special Envoy for Middle East Peace
April 16, 2009

Special Envoy George Mitchell (Apr. 16): "Policy of the United States under President Obama is clear. Beyond any doubt it is in the United States national interest that there be a comprehensive peace settlement in the middle east which would include settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with a two-state solution involving a Palestinian state living side by side alongside the Jewish state of Israel in peace and hopefully stability and prosperity.”
