Gaza, ALRAY - US President Barack Obama ignored, on his speech before the General Assembly of the United Nations on Monday evening, addressing the Palestinian cause and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Palestinian officials expressed their dismay.
Most of Obama's speech concentrated on Syrian crisis, the war against ISIS and the efforts of US to prevent the breaking of third world war.
Secretary of the Executive Committee of the PLO and the chief negotiator, Saeb Erekat, expressed his disappointment of Obama's ignorance to the Palestinian issue.
