The Peace Process

In 1993, Israel and the Palestinian Liberation Organization signed the Declaration of Principles on Interim Self-Government Arrangements, commonly known as the Oslo Accords. This agreement was based on the 1978 Camp David Accords between Israel and Egypt, and led to further US-mediated negotiations between the two sides. The negotiations have continued in an “on again, off again” manner to the present day.
