In a ceremony which President Clinton called, “an extraordinary act in one of history’s defining dramas,” Israel and the Palestinian Liberation Organization signed an agreement which gives the Gaza Strip and Jericho limited self-rule under the PLO. The PLO agrees to recognize Israel as a sovereign nation. From a dais built on the South Lawn, President Clinton and representatives of the Russian Federation, Israel and the PLO spoke to an audience of over 3,000, many of whom have worked for years to achieve peace in the Middle East. Israeli Minister Peres and PLO official Abbas signed the agreement with U.S. Secretary of State Christopher and Russian Federation Foreign Minister signing as witnesses at the same table at which the Camp David Accord was signed. Following the ceremony, all participants shook hands. Chairman Arafat and President Clinton delivered closing remarks, after which the officials proceeded to shake hands with members of the audience seated on the front row. close
