For Peace in the Middle East

July 5, 1992

The 25th Triennial Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 1-6 July 1992 in Santa Cruz, Bolivia:

(Statement adopted in 1975; last revised in 1991)

The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom reaffirms its belief that a lasting peace in the Middle East can only be achieved through agreements among all parties involved in that conflict. We maintain support for an urge:

1. Recognition by all parties to the Arab-Israeli conflict of the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination, including their right to an independent state in the territories occupied by Israel in the June 1967 war;

2. Recognition by all parties to the Arab-Israeli conflict of the territorial integrity and security of the State of Israel within the borders based on those before the June 1967 war;

3. Negotiation of agreements to implement 1 and 2 above through an international conference on peace in the Middle East under the auspices of the united Nations, in accordance with General Assembly Resolution 38/58/C of December 1983 and with the equal participation of all parties concerned, including the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO), the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people;

4. That the just solution of all other questions be included in the negotiations of the international conference on the Middle East mentioned under 3;

5. An end to arms transfers by all arms suppliers to all countries in the Middle East;

6. The establishment of the Middle East as a zone free of all weapons of mass destruction.
