at its one hundred and seventh session on 31 March 1997
THE ARAB-ISRAELI CONFLICT AND ISRAEL'S SABOTAGE OF
THE ONGOING PEACE PROCESS
The Council of the League of Arab States
the latest developments and imminent dangers and the obstacles raised by Israel with a view to sabotaging the ongoing peace process,
to the achievement of a just and comprehensive peace in the region and to salvaging the peace process,
1. That the steps taken towards normalization with Israel in the framework of the ongoing peace process should be halted, and that dealings with Israel should be suspended, together with closure of offices and missions, until such time as Israel complies with the terms of reference of the Madrid Conference and the principle of land for peace and implements the agreements, undertakings and commitments reached by the parties concerned, on all tracks, during the peace talks;
2. That Arab participation in the multilateral negotiations should be suspended, and that commitment to the Arab boycott should be maintained in the forefront and should be kept in effect vis-à-vis Israel until such time as a just and comprehensive peace is achieved in the region.
