Statement By World Bank President James D. Wolfensohn On Palestinian Leader Yasser Arafat
Our deepest condolences go to the family of President Arafat, and to his friends and colleagues who stood by his side over so many turbulent years. The World Bank would like all the Palestinian people to know that we will continue to work for a just peace, and for the achievement of an atmosphere of optimism and hope. We shall continue our efforts to support the Palestinian administration in implementing economic, social, and cultural programs as the basis of security and peace for all.
