ficial to visit Gaza since autono-
my began there and in the West
Bank enclave of Jericho in May,
Mr. Peres met with Mr. Arafat
and Norwegian Foreign Minister
Bjorn Tore Godal last week.
The meeting marked the first
anniversary of the agreement
reached in Oslo, Norway, an
agreement that set the stage for
the Israeli-PLO peace accord.
During the news conference,
Mr. Peres highlighted the issue
of security, saying that the Pales-
tinian leadership must stop at-
tacks on Israelis by radical
Palestinian groups if the peace
accord is to succeed.
"It is in the Palestinian inter-
est to fight terror," Mr. Peres said.
"You can't develop Gaza and oth-
er areas if the terrorists prevent
the development of tourism, in-
dustry and the like."
Last week, Mr. Arafat ordered
the detention of at least 30 mem-

attacks on Israelis. Most of the
detained, however, were later re-
leased.
'We will not accept any chal-
lenge to discipline in the Pales-
tinian territories," Mr. Arafat said
at the news conference.
Mr. Arafat also used the occa-
sion to renew his pleas for foreign
assistance, which donor countries
have pledged but withheld, de-
manding strict accounting pro-
cedures on the part of the PLO.
"Not to forget, we are starting
from zero and we need help from
all our friends everywhere," Mr.
Arafat said.
The Norwegian foreign minis-
ter said his country would help
pay the salaries of the Palestin-
ian police until the pledges of for-
eign assistance, estimated at
$600 million for this year alone,
begin to arrive.
Meanwhile, Mr. Peres used the
occasion to announce that start-
ing this week Israel would trans-
fer responsibility for education to
Palestinians throughout the West
Bank.
"For the first time in history,
the Palestinian people will be re-
sponsible for their own children,
for their own education," Mr.
Peres said.
The move represented the first
phase in the so-called "early em-
powerment," the transfer to
Palestinian control of such areas
as education, health, tourism and
taxation throughout the West
Bank.
