Israel says Sharon-Abbas summit fails to realize expected success
Palestine-Israel, Politics, 6/25/2005
A spokesman for Israeli Foreign Ministry said on Friday that the meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas failed to realize the expected success due to the failure of Palestinian Authority to curb what he called terrorism.
The spokesman said that Sharon was expecting from the Palestinian Authority to start taking the necessary measures to fight terrorism.
The truce is a Palestinian local affair between the Palestinian Authority and the factions, he noted, underlining that his country was not committed to that truce.
The only thing the summit realized is the understanding between the two sides concerning the coordination of the pullout plans, the spokesman said, noting that the Palestinian Authority, not the factions, would take control of the territories.
Meantime, Palestinian Preventive Security Commander in Gaza Brigadier Rashid Abu AShebak accused Israel yesterday of trying to flare-up domestic sedition among Palestinians.
In statements to Sawt Al Arab radio, Abu AShebak said both the Palestinians and the Israelis did not reach any result during their security meetings, adding that the Israelis did not honor their commitments, especially as regards briging into effect the Sharm el Sheikh understandings.
He pointed out that the Palestinian-Israeli cool-off is now vulnerable due to the Israeli government's practices.
