President Clinton welcomed Prime Minister Rabin of Israel and King Hussein of Jordan to the White House South Lawn for the signing of the Washington Declaration. Under the Declaration, Jordan and Israel have agreed to continue vigorous negotiations to produce a peace treaty based on Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338. The President explained that King Hussein and Prime Minister Rabin will meet as often as necessary to “shepherd and personally direct” those negotiations. Meanwhile, Jordan and Israel have agreed to take immediate steps to normalize relations and resolve disputes in areas of common concern. These actions include: establishing direct telephone links; connecting the two nations' electricity grids; opening border crossings at Aqaba and Eilat and another in the north; accelerating the negotiations aimed at opening an international air corridor between the two countries; and giving free access to third-country tourists traveling between the two nations. The ceremony took place on the South Lawn under a canopy featuring the flags of each nation. close
