Israel against revising autonomy, Sharon says

Defense Minister Ariel Sharon returned from the United States Tuesday saying he had made it absolutely clear to Washington that Israel would not accept any alternatives to the Camp David autonomy plan for the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Mr. Sharon met with Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger and Secretary of State George Shultz. He also said US public opinion is turning in favor of Israel.
