Sharon vows steps if peace plan fails
Thu 18 December, 2003 18:35
HERZLIYA, Israel (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has said in a major policy address that Israel will take unilateral steps for
separation from the Palestinians if a U.S.-backed peace plan fails.
Sharon said on Thursday the "road map" was the best path to peace, but Israel would act in months if the Palestinians did not follow it.
He said that a "separation plan" would involve the redeployment of Israeli forces and changing the distribution of settlements to reduce the number
of Israelis near centres of Palestinian population.
"If within a number of months the Palestinians will continue not carrying out their part of the road map, then Israel will initiate a unilateral
security measure of separation," Sharon said.
He said any measures would be coordinated with the United States, Israel's main ally.
