Remarks From Stakeout at UN HeadquartersSecretary Condoleezza Rice
New York City
September 22, 2008
QUESTION: Madame Secretary, what are you working to get from the Palestinians this morning?
SECRETARY RICE: This is another – obviously, the AHLC has been supporting the Palestinians for years. The Norwegian chair here has been very effective and I think we’ll have an opportunity to make certain that everybody is paying attention to their Paris commitments to the Palestinians and also to get a report from Prime Minister Fayyad on how things are going on the ground.
QUESTION: Well, how was your meeting last night with him?
SECRETARY RICE: Excellent. Really, he’s always a wonderful breath of fresh air.
QUESTION: And are the Arab nations coming through with their pledges, Madame Secretary?
SECRETARY RICE: Yes. In fact, I believe people are very attentive to their pledges, but this will give us another opportunity.
QUESTION: Thank you.
SECRETARY RICE: Thank you.
