US President Bill Clinton (C) stands between PLO leader Yasser Arafat (R) and Israeli Prime Minister Yitzahk Rabin (L) as they shake hands on September 13, 1993, at the White House in Washington DC.

The agreement was considered the cornerstone of the peace process between Israelis and Palestinians.

In the accords, Israel was formally recognised as a state, but there was no official recognition of a Palestinian state.

The US has taken a host of punitive steps in recent weeks in an attempt to pressure the Palestinian Authority (PA) to play ball with its faltering attempt at getting them back to the negotiating table with Israel, including closing the delegation's office in Washington and de-funding UNRWA, the UN's Palestinian refugee agency, as well as East Jerusalem hospitals.

One of these obligations was that the Palestinian leadership would not unilaterally seek global recognition for a Palestinian state but instead would have to negotiate with Israel about the so-called two-state solution.

The worldwide community, however, ignored Palestinian intransigence and instead blamed the growing Israeli "settlement" enterprise in Judea and Samaria for the failure of each effort to solve the conflict while pressuring Israel into making irresponsible steps that could have created a "Trojan Horse" in Israel's biblical heartland.

Palestinian officials have charged that the Trump administration has come up with "nothing of substance" in trying to end the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict despite the U.S. president's stated confidence in securing what he calls "the ultimate deal". "But the Palestinians have more to gain than Israel ever will", she said. Trump says: 'If you want to sit down and negotiate, do it from a realistic place: Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and there is no right of return.

"They are so immersed in supporting the Palestinian narrative and blindly believing what Palestinian leaders say that they don't really accept reality"'.
