Sharon supports Palestinian state

Sharon spoke at a conference in Hertzlia. He said that Israel supports the plan Bush put forward in his speech in June. Sharon said that there will be a Palestinian state, which will be disarmed, except for light weapons for internal law enforcement use. It will also be barred from forming strategic and military alliances with other states in the region. Sharon stressed that "we will not return to territories that we gave up under international agreements". He also expressed support for a continuing construction of a security fence between Israel and the territories.
