A senior diplomatic official called the cancellation of US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's Israel visit unprecedented, Israel Radio reported on Tuesday. According to the official, Washington's decision could be misconstrued in the region as meaning that the US believed the peace process could not move forward due to the situation in Israel. Meanwhile, sources in Jerusalem expressed surprise over the cancellation, the report said, since meetings with the US Embassy had taken place just the day before in preparation for Rice's visit.
