Palestinian Prime Minister Meets US Defense Secretary; Demands Palestinian State By September
Salam Fayyad, the Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority led by the Fateh party, met on Friday with Robert Gates, the US Secretary of State, who was visiting Ramallah after a visit with the Israeli Prime Minister earlier on Friday.
During the meeting, the Palestinian Prime Minister set a deadline of September for the implementation of a plan laid out two years ago that would establish a provisional Palestinian state, and begin a pull-out of Israeli troops and settlers from the occupied Palestinian Territories.
