Palestinian PM worried about US stance towards Sharon plan
The Palestinian prime minister said Saturday he is worried about indications the Bush administration may support Israel's unilateral plan for pulling out of some Palestinian areas.
"What I heard is that they may accept Sharon's plan. And this 'may' is irritating and worrying," Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qurei told reporters after a Saturday Cabinet meeting.
Ariel Sharon first announced his "disengagement plan" in December and said he would put the program into action in the coming months if there is no progress on road map peace plan.
