Oslo I Accord
The Oslo I Accord was an attempt to set up a framework that would lead to the resolution of the ongoing Israeli–Palestinian conflict. It was the first face-to-face agreement between the government of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). It was ratified at a signing ceremony in Washington, D.C., on 13 September 1993, attended by Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, US president Bill Clinton and PLO leader Yasser Arafat. This photograph shows Arafat, Israeli foreign minister Shimon Peres, and Rabin receiving the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo for their participation in the accord.Photograph credit: Saar Yaacov
