Lieberman, D-Conn., expressed sup-
port for Palestinian statehood during
a visit to Ramallah.

aspirations of the Palestinian people
for independent statehood. The

ficient leadership here and in the
world to bring this about sooner
than later," Lieberman told reporters
Monday following talks with
Palestinian Authority Minister Yasser

in Ramallah "desperate," met later
Monday with Palestinian Cabinet
Minister Saeb Erekat. Erekat said

real fight against terrorism," Gissin
Palestinian Authority leader Yasser
Arafat told reporters that he has "a
lot of reservations" about the revised
plan, but did not spell them out.
In a related development, Arafat's
Fatah movement is renewing
Egyptian-backed efforts to persuade
