Ariel Sharon cancelled a trip to the United States. The Israeli prime minister was to travel to Washington next week to address a policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and possibly hold talks with President Bush. Sharon’s office said Sunday the trip had been cancelled due to Israeli government deliberations over Sharon’s embattled plan to “disengage” from the Palestinians. U.S. officials did not immediately comment. Deputy Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is to address AIPAC in Sharon’s stead.
