It will not be ours nor the Palestinians... (it) will be managed by an international trustee which includes (other) countries, Olmert said, describing his vision for the area known as the Holy Basin. Israel is one of them, the Palestinians are there, the Saudi Arabians, according to my offer, the Jordanians and the Americans. This is a trust fund of five countries.
This trust is going to ensure the freedom of access to all the holy sites to any Jew, to any Muslim, to any Christian, he said.
