PA: We will finance security fence on Green Line

Jerusalem Post, 18.09.05

Palestinian Authority Minister of Prisoners Affairs Sufian Abu Zaida said Friday that the Palestinian Authority would be willing to participate in financing a security fence if it were built along the Green Line.
In a Tel Aviv conference dedicated to forwarding the Geneva initiative, Abu Zaida responded to the unfettered flow of Palestinians in and out of Egypt via the Philadelphi corridor.
Abu Zaida said that the number of people passing into Egypt had already been reduced, and that those who passed through only did so in order to realize to taste their newfound freedom since the end of the Israeli occupation.
Abu Zaida also reiterated the PA demand that Israel not control the Gaza-Sinai border, Army Radio reported.
