PLO Executive Committee Member Hanan Ashrawi said Tuesday that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has succeeded in convincing US President Barack Obama and the rest of the world that Iran is the central issue in the region, Israel Radio reported.

Ashrawi stated that the Palestinian issue has been marginalized because it does not serve as a threat to Obama in the upcoming US presidential election.

The PLO official added that the Palestinian issue is the key to stability in the region.
