including Articles XXIX-XXXI: provisions relating to the security of the transit of persons and the safety of passengers between the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, coordination between Israel and the Council with regard to transit to and from Egypt and Jordan, as well as all other agreed international crossing points, then the final provisions relating to the signing of the agreement and its implementation, that the Gaza-Jericho agreement (May 1994), the preparatory agreement on transfers (August 1994) and the protocol on onward transfer (August 1995) be replaced by this agreement, the need and date of the negotiations on sustainable status, and that: the preamble to the agreement speaks of peaceful coexistence, mutual dignity and security, while recognizing the mutual legitimate and political rights of the parties. One of the objectives of the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations is to establish, for a transitional period of up to five years, an interim palestinian self-governing authority for the Palestinian people of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, which will lead to a lasting settlement based on Security Council resolutions 242 and 338. The interim agreement on the West Bank and Gaza Strip, commonly known as Oslo II or Oslo 2, was an important and complex agreement in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. As Oslo II was signed in Taba, it is sometimes referred to as the Taba Agreement. The Oslo Accords provided for the establishment of interim Palestinian autonomy in the Palestinian territories, but did not promise an independent Palestinian state. Oslo II created Zones A, B and C in the West Bank. The Palestinian Authority has been given a number of limited competences and responsibilities in Areas A and B and the prospect of negotiating a final settlement on the basis of Security Council resolutions 242 and 338. The agreement was officially signed on 28 September 1995. Discussion on the release of Palestinian prisoners, agreement on annexes and attached maps and start of the transfer from Israel. The Oslo II Accords are considered interim agreements, as they should serve as a basis for further negotiations and as a prelude to a possible comprehensive peace agreement. Several additional agreements were reached after Oslo II, but negotiations did not result in a final peace agreement. The 2002 road map for peace abandoned the Oslo Accords and provided for a rather lax withdrawal programme. The Oslo II Accords were first concluded on the 24th Signed by Israel and the PLO on 28 September 1995 in Taba (Sinai Peninsula, Egypt) and testified four days later, on 28 September 1995, by Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat, and testified by US President Bill Clinton and representatives of Russia.
