Barak backs Jerusalem partition plan
WASHINGTON Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Friday night said he supported a plan to divide Jerusalem, as suggested by former United States President Bill Clinton in 2000.

During a speech at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy's seventh annual forum in Washington, Barak noted that the western part of the capital and the Jewish neighborhood belonged to Israel, while neighborhoods with dense Arab populations should be under Palestinian control.

The defense minister stressed that any future peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians must include a declaration stating that the conflict has ended and that the sides cannot make additional claims. He added that strict security arrangements must also be included in such an agreement.
