Israel–Jordan peace treaty

The Israeli- Jordanian peace treaty is a peace treaty between Israel and Jordan, which was signed by King Hussein of Jordan, the Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and U.S. President Bill Clinton on October 26, 1994. The contract is based on the Washington Declaration, which Hussein, Rabin and Clinton had signed on 25 July 1994 in the U.S. capital.

The agreement contains 30 articles. Article 1 stipulates that from now on there is peace between the two countries. Article 3 describes the boundaries: The boundary between Israel and Jordan is the river Jordan; in case of change of the flow curve, the limit would have to be redrawn. The limit in the section between En Gedi and Beit She'an is not fixed, since Jordan insists that the final border demarcation was to be determined together with the Palestinian Authority. Article 6 contains assurances that Jordan may refer to large quantities of water from the Jordan River.
