Palestine's olive oil bottle the cheapest gift in federal register!
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas offered the US leader $521 (Rs 23,200) in gifts, including the least expensive item listed by the federal register: a $75 (Rs 3,400) bottle of olive oil.
All the presents are handed over to the National Archives as US law bars any government official from receiving a present from a foreign government.
Obama and others accepted the gifts because "non-acceptance would cause embarrassment to the donor and US government," the register said.
