Shamil Sheikh Agreement

The aim of the memorandum was to implement the interim agreement on the West Bank and Gaza Strip (Oslo II) of September 1995 and to implement all other agreements between the PLO and Israel since September 1993: Protocol on Economic Relations (1994); agreement on the Gaza Strip and the territory of Jericho (1994); Washington Declaration (1994); agreement on the preparatory delegation of powers and responsibilities between Israel and the PLO (1994); Protocol on the continuation of the delegation of powers and responsibilities (1995); Wye River Memorandum (1998). The two sides agreed to resume negotiations on permanent status in order to reach an agreement on sustainable status. They reaffirmed that the negotiations on permanent status would lead to the implementation of Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338. Both sides agreed to work resolutely to reach a framework agreement and set a timetable for achieving this goal. The Government of the State of Israel (GOI) and the Palestine Liberation Organization (OLP) are committed to fully and mutually implementing the interim agreement and all other agreements concluded between them since September 1993 (so-called “previous agreements”), as well as all outstanding obligations arising from previous agreements. Without departing from the other demands of the previous agreements, the two sides agreed as follows: the Pakistani Foreign Minister said that he had not yet seen for himself the last remark of the Indian Prime Minister, but he asked if this was India`s position: “What was Sharm el-Sheikh then, what was this agreement?” The issue of the agreement in Sharm el-Sheikh was raised by Pakistan on Saturday, after Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said that the current relations between the two neighbours were not conducive to talks “at any level.” “He doesn`t seem to have closed all the doors. There is still room for manoeuvre. When he did not talk about dialogue, he may have referred to the end-of-procedure dialogue,” the official said, adding that other types of interactions between the two sides were still possible. “The idea is to find a way forward. If they want to meet in a third place, so be it,” he said.
