Hoping to win further backing for the Wye agreement, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released four U.S. letters of guarantees to Israel. In one of the letters, Ambassador to Israel Edward Walker reiterated U.S. opposition to a unilateral declaration of Palestinian statehood. Palestinian negotiator Hassan Asfour downplayed the significance of the letters, saying the Palestinian Authority is not “governed by letters of guarantee, but by the agreements signed.”
