Two rounds of talks between Jordan and the PLO, designed to advance a peaceful solution to the Arab-Israeli conﬂict, were held in Amman. These efforts paid off in February 1986, when Jordan and the PLO signed what was known as the Amman Accord. The PLO had moderated its policy, indicated by its willingness to accept UN Resolution 242 as a basis to end the conﬂict, to make it eligible as a partner in any prospective peace negotiations.
