Intelligence Assessment of PLO Plan to Declare Independence

(October 26, 1988)

This State Department intelligence assessment examines the positions of Arab states with regard to the Palestinians' plan to declare the establishment of a Palestinian state at a meeting of the Palestine National Council. The report concludes most Arab states will announce their support. although Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia have reservations that such a state is workable, or desirable, they cannot afford to appear less than fully supportive of the Palestinian cause.
