Dear Dr. Baskin,
Thank you for your letter of congratulations of March 11, 2003.
Your personal work, and that of IPCRI, have always stood as an example of the kind of relation that both the Palestinian and the Israeli people deserve: commitment to dialogue as the means for advancing joint interests and for resolving disputes.
I and the Palestinian Authority remain committed to a peaceful resolution of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, and hope that the forces of peace in Israel will prevail.
