Bush, Sharon Agree On Settlement Freeze

In an interesting move, President Bush asked Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to not expand the West Bank settlements. He did so both publicly and privately. This issue has been in the front line of the fragile peace agreement between Palestinians and Israelis, and it was expected to cause severe problems if it was carried out. Sharon had expressed his need for U.S. to support the expansion, but Bush denied it. Sharon Agreed without much resistance, surprisingly enough. The president also pointed to Sharon that the expansion violated the international peace plan that called for a settlement freeze. Sharon also agreed.
