6月21日，巴勒斯坦民族权力机构主席阿巴斯和以色列总理沙龙在圣城耶路撒冷举行会谈，会谈重点是如何确保今年8月份加沙撤离计划顺利执行。这是巴以首脑自今年2月会晤以来的第二次会面，也是巴以冲突以来双方领导人首次在耶路撒冷举行峰会，但结果并未令双方满意。外电报道如下：Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said he and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas agreed at a summit on Tuesday to coordinate Israel's Gaza pullout, but Palestinians described the talks as disappointing.
"We agreed during the meeting on full coordination of our departure from Gaza. A coordinated move will ensure a peaceful exit, something that is best for both sides," Sharon said, echoing remarks Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice made during a weekend visit.
Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qurie, who attended what officials described as a tense summit at Sharon's Jerusalem residence, said, however: "It was a difficult meeting and it did not meet our expectations."
Echo在此表示“重复，重申”，例如：He echoed every word of his superior.（他随声附和上级的每一句话。）；events that echoed a previous incident in history（历史重演）。
