Israel says Conditions Right for Historic Breakthrough with Palestinians

  • VOA News

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon says conditions are right for a "historic breakthrough" in the Middle East peace process because of steps taken by the new Palestinian leadership.

Mr. Sharon spoke Thursday, saying that if Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is able to stop terror attacks Israel would be willing to advance the peace process. Meanwhile, Mr. Abbas urged Israel to quickly agree to a formal cease-fire after he convinced Palestinian militant groups to stop attacks on Israelis. Also Thursday, Palestinians voted in the first municipal elections in nearly three decades in the Gaza Strip.
