Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement On The West Bank And The Gaza Strip

The interim agreement includes more than 300 pages of 5 chapters containing 31 “articles” and 7 “appendices” and 9 “cards.” The agreement has a “preamble” that acknowledges its roots in the previous diplomatic efforts of UN Security Council Resolution 242 (1967) and UN Security Council Resolution 338 (1973), the 1991 Madrid Conference and other previous agreements. In particular, the agreement recognizes the establishment of an “acting autonomous Palestinian authority”, i.e. an elected Council called the “Council” or “Palestinian Council”. The Oslo II agreement is called the interim agreement, as it should serve as the basis for further negotiations and the construction of a possible comprehensive peace agreement. After Oslo II, several other agreements were concluded, but negotiations did not result in a final peace agreement. The 2002 roadmap abandoned the Oslo Accords and provided for a rather loose withdrawal programme. The agreement is based on the original Oslo I agreement, officially known as the Declaration of Principles on Interim Self-Management Agreements and officially signed on 13 September 1993 by Israel and the PLO, with Prime Minister Rabin and President Arafat shaking hands in Washington, D.C.C. have been officially certified by the United States and Russia. The preamble to the agreement speaks of peaceful coexistence, mutual dignity and security, while recognizing the legitimate and political reciprocal rights of the parties. The Israeli-Palestinian negotiations aim in particular to create, for a transition period of up to five years, a transitional Palestinian authority for the Palestinian people in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, leading to a lasting settlement on the basis of Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338. Articles XXIX-XXXI include safe transit and transport agreements between the West Bank and gaza Strip, coordination between Israel and the Council on the crossing to and from Egypt and Jordan, as well as all other agreed international crossing points, and final clauses relating to the signing of the agreement, its implementation , to the agreement between Gaza and Jericho (May 1994), the preparatory transfer agreement (August 1994) and the new protocol on transfers (August 1995) are replaced by this agreement, the need and date of the permanent status negotiations and the interim agreement on the West Bank and Gaza Strip, commonly known as Oslo II or Oslo 2, an important and complex agreement in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

As Oslo II was signed in Taba, it is sometimes called the taba agreements. The Oslo Accords provided for the formation of transitional Palestinian autonomy in the Palestinian territories, but did not promise an independent Palestinian state.
