Denial and Deception

For Immediate Release
March 15, 2003

Global Message

KEY POINTS Middle East Peace

  • President Bush is committed to achieving the vision of two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security, as he spelled out in his speech last June.

  • All parties - the Israelis, the Palestinians, and the Arab states - have responsibilities to work to achieve this vision.

  • Working with members of the Quartet last year - officials from the US, the EU, Russia, and the UN - we developed a Roadmap meant to set forth the steps needed to realize the President's vision.

  • President Bush announced Friday that he is prepared to deliver the Roadmap to the parties, Israeli and Palestinian, as soon as the Palestinians create an empowered Prime Minister position and fill it with a credible person.

  • This is an auspicious time for peace in the Middle East. A new Israeli government is in place. And the Palestinians may be on the verge of implementing important reforms.

  • Aiding Palestinians reform will encourage the development of democratic institutions, modernization, and prosperity in the region.
