The article reports that the U.S. president Barack Obama wants to relaunch the peace initiative in Middle East. Obama by sending his peace ambassador George J. Mitchell to the region made very clear that he is determined to start the peace drive again in Middle East. Since, Saudi Arabia is an emerging economy engaged in global efforts to stabilise the world economy, it is vital for the U.S. administration to take steps to prevent any further suffering of Palestinians through the peace process.
