I would like to extend my congratulations and good wishes to President Obama on his re-election. I have enormous respect for the President and have always valued our meetings and discussions, particularly on finding a pathway to peace in the Middle East.
I look forward to continuing to work with the President and other world leaders towards real progress in this region in the months and years to come. This issue remains as urgent as ever.
