Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said after his meeting with US President George W. Bush in the White House that he was "very satisfied" with the understanding he reached concerning his plan for possible unilateral withdrawal from parts of the West Bank. In a briefing with Israeli reporters after the meeting, Olmert stressed that Bush's remarks about his plan, calling Olmert's ideas "bold" and "important steps towards peace", were made in a "very clear and remarkable way". Members of Olmert's team noted that though the US president did not go all the way in endorsing the "realignment" plan, Bush did treat it positively and acknowledged it as a possible avenue in the future.
