ARABS-ISRAEL - July 3 - PLO Council Approves Declaring State.

The Palestinian Central Council approves Pres. Arafat's plan to declare an independent state by the end of 2000, regardless of whether a final peace is reached with Israel. Salim Al Zanoun, the PCC's president, says: "As the end of the interim period approaches, the central council has asked the PLO Executive Committee to take the proper procedures to declare the Palestinian independent state with Jerusalem as its capital within this period". (Palestinians and Israelis are trying to meet a Sept. 13 deadline for a final peace that would resolve sensitive interim issues in their conflict, including the status of Jerusalem, Jewish settlements and Palestinian refugees.)
