The agreement was reached at a meeting Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz and Palestinian Interior Minister Nasser Youssef. "They plan to tackle every detail of the withdrawal plan," said Tawfiq Abu-Khoussa, a spokesman for the Palestinian Interior Ministry. Mofaz and Youssef also discussed Israel's long-delayed handover of towns in Judea and Samaria to Palestinian control.
