President also appreciated President Bush's vision to establishing a viable and continuant Palestinian state, with Jerusalem as its capital living side by side with Israel in security and peace.

"I want to assure you Mr. President , as I assured others that I have heard loud and clear the call for deeper American engagement in these processes and the United States is committed to find a solution where Israelis and Palestinians can live in security."

"These are our goals and we abide by President Bush's vision on a viable Palestinian state," Rice said.

Rice said that "I desire the Palestinian people must be able to live in dignity, democracy and in peace of which a government can be respected and supported by international community that something which the Palestinian people deserves."
