It became a cycle of negotiations, suspension, mediation, restart of negotiations and suspension again. A number of agreements were reached, until the Oslo process ended after the failure of the Camp David Summit in and the outbreak of the Second Intifada.
However, because the Palestinians were not represented at the talks, which were held at the country retreat of U. President Jimmy Carterthe resulting agreement was not formally recognized by the United Nations.
Oslo I Negotiations As the PLO and representatives of the Israeli government arrived in Norway some 15 years later, the Camp David Accords served as both a model and starting point for the latest negotiations, in that the ultimate goal was to build a framework for the creation of an independent Palestinian state.
The Norwegians effectively served as mediators between the two sides. Israel and the PLO However, before both sides could begin talks, there was the not-so-small matter of each recognizing the legitimacy of the other.
Oslo II Oslo I also set the agenda for the follow-up agreement that became known as Oslo II, which would include discussion of the future governance of the city of Jerusalem both sides claim it as their respective capital as well as issues concerning borders, security and the rights, if any, of Israeli settlers in the West Bank.
A protocol for free elections for Palestinian Authority leadership was also established. Oslo II, which was signed two years later, gave the Palestinian Authority, which oversees Gaza and the West Bank, limited control over part of the region, while allowing Israel to annex much of the West Bank, and established parameters for economic and political cooperation between the two sides.
As part of the treaty, for example, both sides were prohibited from inciting violence or conflict against the other. Israel also collects taxes from Palestinians who work in Israel but live in the Occupied Territories, distributing the revenue to the Palestinian Authority.
Israel also oversees the trade of goods and services into and out of Gaza and the West Bank. Aftermath of the Oslo Accords Unfortunately, any momentum gained from the ratification of the Oslo Accords was short-lived.
InPalestinian officials accused Israel of not following through on the troop withdrawals from Gaza and Hebron called for in the Oslo Accords. And, after initially slowing down settlement construction in the West Bank, at the request of the United States, the building of new Israeli housing in the region began in earnest again in the early s.
Conversely, critics of the Accords said that Palestinian violence against Israeli citizens increased in their aftermath, coinciding with the increasing power of the Palestinian Authority. These critics felt that the Palestinian Authority was failing to adequately police Gaza and the West Bank, and identify and prosecute suspected terrorists.
With these disagreements providing the backdrop, negotiators from both sides reconvened, once again at Camp David, with the hope of following up on the Oslo Accords with a comprehensive peace treaty.
However, with the United States playing a key role in the negotiations, the talks soon collapsed, complicated further by the impending changes in American leadership the second term of President Bill Clinton would end, and he would be replaced by George W.
Bush in January The period of violence on both sides that ensued dashed any hopes of lasting peace, and the Israelis and Palestinians have not held substantive negotiations since. Although some provisions of the Oslo Accords remain in effect—namely, the role of the Palestinian Authority in governance in Gaza and the West Bank—many of the provisions have long been abandoned.
