Bush won't force plan on Palestinians and Israelis

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush will not force a solution on Israelis and Palestinians nor impose a U.S. peace plan as they work toward Middle East peace, White House national security adviser Stephen Hadley said on Wednesday.

"The president will not force a resolution of differences nor impose a peace plan with his name on it," Hadley said in prepared remarks for a speech on the Middle East at Johns Hopkins University.

"What the president will do is use his relationships with the parties to help them build the confidence necessary to make hard choices for peace. He has made clear that he is only a phone call away," Hadley said.
