If Obama fully supports Palestinian efforts to become an independent state, then the name he will go down in world history, said Joseph in panel discussion organized by Indonesian Council of World Affairs (ICWA) in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with the theme "State of Palestine and the United Nations".

In the discussion Mehdawi Ambassador also expressed his gratitude to Indonesia for helping the Palestinians and supports the achievement of Palestinian independence. "We felt strongly because we are supported by many countries. When the whole world behind you, you will not feel weak and fragile. You will be confident. That is what we feel, in contrast to Israel. We do not feel excluded, "said Mehdawi. Palestinian leader would seek United Nations recognition of a Palestinian state in September this year.
