The Palestine Liberation Organization and UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, have signed an agreement calling for the U.N. agency to help foster development in the areas slated for Palestinian autonomy.
The agreement was signed in Granada, Spain, by PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat and Federico Mayor Zaragoza, head of UNESCO, at a symposium focusing on ways to build peace in the Middle East.
The venue was also a meeting place for Arafat and Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres.
