Around the Red Sea and surrounding areas
What the Leaders Agreed on at the Red Sea Summit
A look at agreements reached during the summit between Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and Jordanian King Abdullah.
  • CEASEFIRE: Abbas said Palestinians will halt all violence against Israelis. Sharon said Israel will stop military activity against all Palestinians. Israel would also stop its controversial targeted killing operations against wanted Palestinians, as long as the Palestinians kept militants under control.
  • After Sharon's declaration of an end to military operations, the two sides would go back to operating as they did before the 2000 outbreak of fighting: In Palestinian-controlled areas, including most of Gaza and eventually most West Bank towns, the Israelis would coordinate with Palestinian security forces if they wanted to arrest someone.
  • PRISONERS: Israel will immediately release 500 Palestinian prisoners as a goodwill gesture, with another 400 to be freed later.
  • COOPERATION: They agreed to establish joint committees one to determine criteria for the release of Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails, and the other to oversee the gradual withdrawal of Israeli forces from Palestinian cities in the West Bank.
  • AMBASSADORS: Egypt and Jordan say they will return their ambassadors to Israel. The diplomats were recalled following the outbreak of violence in late 2000.
  • HOUSE CALLS: Abbas accepted an invitation to visit Sharon at his ranch in southern Israel. Sharon also said he would like the next meeting between the two leaders to be in the West Bank town of Ramallah.
