Middle East Road Map 2003
On June 24, 2002, President George W. Bush laid out a vision for a peaceful future between Israel and the Arab states, focusing especially on steps toward the creation of a provisional Palestinian state in three years.
The plan also called for Israel to take certain measures to facilitate the creation of a Palestinian state, but only after the Palestinians replace Yasser Arafat as their leader, reform their institutions and end terrorism.
The plan also called on the Arab states and the international community to play a role, particularly in providing humanitarian aid to the Palestinians and ending support for terrorism.
In exchange for statehood, the road map required the Palestinian Authority to make democratic reforms and abandon the use of violence.
Israel, for its part, had to support and accept the emergence of a reformed Palestinian government and end Israeli settlements of the Gaza Strip and West Bank as Palestinian terrorism is stopped.
