After Oslo II, several other agreements were concluded, but negotiations did not result in a final peace agreement. The 2002 roadmap abandoned the Oslo Accords and provided for a rather loose withdrawal programme. Debate on the release of Palestinian prisoners, agreement on attached annexes and cards and the beginning of Israeli redistribution. The interim agreement includes more than 300 pages of 5 chapters containing 31 “articles” and 7 “appendices” and 9 “cards.” The agreement has a “preamble” that acknowledges its roots in the previous diplomatic efforts of UN Security Council Resolution 242 (1967) and UN Security Council Resolution 338 (1973), the 1991 Madrid Conference and other previous agreements. In particular, the agreement recognizes the establishment of an “acting autonomous Palestinian authority”, i.e. an elected Council called the “Council” or “Palestinian Council”. The interim agreement on the West Bank and Gaza Strip, commonly known as Oslo II or Oslo 2, was a key and complex agreement in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. As Oslo II was signed in Taba, it is sometimes called the taba agreements. The Oslo Accords provided for the formation of transitional Palestinian autonomy in the Palestinian territories, but did not promise an independent Palestinian state.
