U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright hosted a group of Palestinian legislators in an informal meeting at the State Department. The group met with U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), who had invited them and other lawmakers to come to Washington during his recent trip to the Middle East.
