BUREAU OF PALESTINIAN RIGHTS COMMITTEE WELCOMES
ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN HEBRON AGREEMENT



Following is the text of the statement issued yesterday, 20 January, by the Bureau of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People:

The Bureau of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, at its meeting on 20 January, was encouraged by the Israeli-Palestinian agreement, reached on 15 January, on the protocol concerning the redeployment of Israeli forces from the city of Hebron and the Note for the Record.

The Bureau of the Committee hopes that the conclusion of this agreement will lead to the full implementation of the agreements already reached between the two parties, in particular the commencement of substantive negotiations on matters pertaining to the permanent settlement.

The Bureau of the Committee reaffirms its full support for the ongoing peace process and the realization of the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people, primarily the right to self-determination and statehood.
