Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has sent his chief aide, Dov Weissglas, to Washington for talks this week on Israel’s proposed changes to the peace plan, which aims to end the conflict and create a Palestinian state in three years.

In an interview published Sunday with Haaretz, Sharon said the plan should include a requirement that Palestinians give up their claim of a right of return to what is now Israel for refugees of the 1948 war that created the state.
