The "great strides" of Arik Sharon, according to Tanya Plibersek

TANYA PLIBERSEK - STATEMENT - ARIEL SHARON -  SUNDAY, 12 JANUARY 2014 

ARIEL SHARON
On behalf of the [Australian] Federal Opposition, today we remember former Israeli Prime Minister and general, Ariel Sharon who passed away this weekend.
 
Ariel Sharon embodied fearless leadership through trying times and spent his life serving Israel and its people.
 
In his final years as Prime Minister, Sharon made great strides in the Israel-Palestine peace process, representing a courageous shift in his politics in favour of a two-state solution.  
 
Sharon will be remembered as a giant in the history of Israel and the Israeli people will deeply feel his loss.

I wonder which "great strides" Ms Plibersek considers to represent "a courageous shift in his politics in favour of a two-state solution"?
