Cairo Agreement 1994

The agreement was incorporated into the Oslo II Accords and replaced by it, officially known as the Interim Agreement on the West Bank and Gaza Strip of 24 and 28 September 1995 (Oslo II, Article XXXI, Final Provisions). [5] 1. The parliamentarians who will meet in Cairo, Egypt, on 3 and 4 September 1994, at the International Conference of Parliamentarians on Population and Development to discuss population and development issues on the eve of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) make the following statement: the agreement provided for limited Palestinian autonomy in the West Bank and Gaza Strip within five years. Under the agreement, Israel promised to withdraw partially from the Jericho area of the West Bank and partly from the Gaza Strip within three weeks of signing. [2] The Palestinian Authority was created by the agreement (Article III, delegation of authority) and Yasser Arafat became the first pa president on July 5, 1994, after the PA`s formal inauguration. [3] The agreement also provided for a Palestinian police force of 9,000 members. They should be equipped with small arms, 120 medium and heavy machine guns and 45 armoured vehicles. From an Israeli perspective, one of the main tasks of the force was to prevent attacks on Israelis in Palestinian-held territories. On that day in 1994, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat, chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization, signed an agreement in Cairo that meets the parameters of limited Palestinian autonomy. 4. Parliamentarians around the world have long recognized the delicate balance between people and natural resources.

We believe that the issue of population should not be considered in isolation, but in the broader context of the sustainable development of the planet for the betterment of humanity: economic activity that improves the quality of life of all human beings by limiting excessive consumption and generating productive growth; poverty alleviation; achieve sustainable agricultural and industrial production, energy and natural resources in harmony with the environment; improve health care and the quality of and access to education. The steps we take now to overcome today`s demographic and development challenges will determine the future direction of humanity. Solving these problems is essential to guarantee the dignity of all human beings. In addition, it is essential to formulate new and far-reaching economic policies that support sustainable development and to launch international agreements on the basis of these policies and approaches. The Gaza-Jericho accords, officially called the Gaza Strip and Jericho Territory Agreements, succeeded the Oslo I Agreement, which struck details on Palestinian autonomy. [1] The agreement is commonly known as the 1994 Cairo Agreement. It was signed on May 4, 1994 by Yasser Arafat and then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. The new agreement followed the Oslo Accords signed by Rabin and Arafat at the White House on September 13, 1993, in the presence of President Bill Clinton.

The agreements, meanwhile, were conceived as a framework for future relations between the two sides and marked the first direct agreement between the Palestinians and the Jewish state. Other parts of the agreement were the Protocol on Economic Relations (Paris Protocol) and the establishment of the Palestinian Civil Police. . . .
