Palestinians May Scrap Oslo Peace Accord

Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said on Tuesday that the Palestinian leadership is considering canceling the Oslo Accords signed in September 1993 between the Palestinian Authority and Israel.

According to Erekat, Israel has sabotaged all attempts to revive the peace process, and by doing so has forced the PA to consider withdrawing from the agreements. “Such a step would not be an easy decision,” he said on Tuesday in Ramallah.

Erekat’s statements echo those made by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday during a meeting of the Palestinian leadership. According to reports, Abbas raised the idea of “canceling the Oslo agreement as well as the associated economic and security arrangements.”

The Oslo Accords contained a set of mutually agreed upon general principles regarding the establishment of self-governance of the Palestinian territories. A five-year interim period of Palestinian self-governance was declared and final status negotiations were set for a later date, which was intended to lead to a final peace agreement.
