WASHINGTON, March 30 (KUNA) -- The United States of America (US) welcomed on Friday the formation of the new Palestinian government to achieve the aspirations of the Palestinian people.
"We look forward to working with the new cabinet to promote peace, security, and prosperity" and expects "this new government to deliver on credible reforms", US foreign ministry Spokesman Matthew Miller said in a statement.
