The Seventh Arab Summit Conference in Rabat resolved in October 1974: to affirm the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination and to return to their homeland; to affirm the right of the Palestinian people to establish an independent national authority under the command of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people in any Palestinian territory that is liberated...; to support the PLO in the exercise of its responsibility at the national and international levels within the framework of Arab commitment; to call on the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the Syrian Arab Republic, the Arab Republic of Egypt and the PLO to devise a formula for the regulation of relations between them in the light of these decisions so as to ensure their implementation; that all the Arab states undertake to defend Palestinian national unity and not to interfere in the internal affairs of Palestinian action.
