The president of Yemen told President George W. Bush on Wednesday that he would guarantee a place for himself in history if he should succeed in establishing a Palestinian state living in peace with Israel. After meeting with Bush at the White House, President Ali Abdullah Saleh urged his host to pursue an initiative put forward by the Arabs that would trade full Arab recognition of Israel in exchange for Israel's return of captured Arab lands and a just solution for Palestinian refugees. "I wish that his excellency (Bush) would pursue his effort and will continue his effort in implementing the Arab initiative which was adopted in the summit of Beirut to maintain peace in the region," Saleh said. "I am sure that adopting such initiative would end 70 percent of the problems in the region."
