A US official on Thursday stressed that while it may not be easy, his country will push hard for the continuation of the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians and for the establishment of a Palestinian state. "We're going to be working hard to see what we can do to move the process forward. But we're under no illusions. It's not going to be easy," Reuters quoted US State Department spokesman Robert Wood as saying. "We have to engage constantly and remind the parties of their obligations and to try to set up a framework, a process for getting us toward that goal of a two-state solution," Wood reportedly added. Wood went on to say that new foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman is "well aware" of the US position.
