'Jordan and Israel aim at a just, lasting peace'
Tuesday 26 July 1994
Jordan and Israel aim at the achievement of a just, lasting and comprehensive peace between Israel and its neighbours and at the conclusion of a Treaty of Peace between both countries.
The two countries will vigorously continue their negotiations to arrive at a state of peace, based on Security Council resolutions 242 and 338 in all their aspects, and founded on freedom, equality and justice.
Israel respects the present special role of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in Muslim holy shrines in Jerusalem. When negotiations on the permanent status will take place, Israel will give high priority to the Jordanian historic role in these shrines. In addition, the two sides have agreed to act together to promote interfaith relations among the three monotheistic religions.
The two countries recognise their right and obligation to live in peace with each other as well as with all states within secure and recognised boundaries.
The two states affirmed their respect for and acknowledgment of the sovereignty, territorial integrity and political independence of every state in the area.
The two countries desire to develop good neighbourly relations of co-operation between them, to ensure lasting security and to avoid threats and the use of force between them. The long conflict between the two states is now coming to an end. In this spirit, the state of belligerency between Jordan and Israel has been terminated. His Majesty King Hussein and Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin have today approved a series of steps to symbolise the new era now at hand: 1. Direct telephone links will be opened between Jordan and Israel. 2. The electricity grids of Jordan and Israel will be linked as part of a regional concept. 3. Two new border crossings will be opened between Jordan and Israel - one at the tip of Aqaba-Eilat and the other at a mutually agreed point in the north. 4. In principle free access will be given to third- country tourists travelling between Jordan and Israel. 5. Negotiations will be accelerated on opening an international air corridor between the two countries. 6. The police forces of Jordan and Israel will co-operate in combating crime, with emphasis on smuggling, particularly drug smuggling.
