Washington Declaration


The Washington Declaration formally ended the 46-year state of war between Jordan and Israel. The declaration committed both Jordan and Israel to aim at the achievement of a just, lasting and comprehensive peace between Arab states and the Palestinians, with Israel. The agreement safeguards Islamic control over the Muslim Holy Sites of Jerusalem and mandates a number of practical steps to improve relations between the two parties including establishment of direct telephone links, opening border crossings, linking of the Jordanian and Israeli power grids and establishing police cooperation in combating crime.
