Land for Peace

views updated


Basic principle of the Israeli-Arab peace process, which first emerged in Resolution 242 and later in discussions surrounding Resolution 338 of the United Nations Security Council. Demands were made that Israel withdraw from "the territories" it had been occupying since 1967 (the Arab-Israel War) as the Arab countries were ready to make peace on condition that Israel restore the lands it occupied. The concept was incorporated into the Madrid Conference on the Middle East in October 1991.
