September 07, 1986

Fatah, the mainstream Palestinian guerrilla group, renounced a 1985 accord between Palestine Liberation Organization Chairman Yasser Arafat and Jordan's King Hussein on a joint approach to Middle East peace. Fatah said the stance was agreed on at a meeting in Prague between Fatah representatives, the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the Palestinian Communist Party. Hussein suspended the accord in February because Arafat refused to accept U.N. Resolution 242, which implicitly recognizes Israel's right to exist. Political analysts noted that the statement stopped short of scrapping the accord.
