STATEMENT OF PRINCIPLES
(Signed by Ami Ayalon & Sari Nusseibeh on July 27, 2003)

1. Two states for two peoples: Both sides will declare that Palestine is the only state of the Palestinian people and Israel is the only state of the Jewish people.

2. Borders: Permanent borders between the two states will be agreed upon on the basis of the June 4, 1967 lines, UN resolutions, and the Arab peace initiative (known as the Saudi initiative). 

3. Jerusalem:  Jerusalem will be an open city, the capital of two states. Freedom of religion and full access to holy sites will be guaranteed to all. 4. Right of return:  Recognizing the suffering and the plight of the Palestinian refugees, the international community, Israel, and the Palestinian State will initiate and contribute to an international fund to compensate them. 5. The Palestinian State will be demilitarized and the international community will guarantee its security and independence.

6. End of conflict: Upon the full implementation of these principles, all claims on both sides and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will end.
