It also specified the following steps to be carried out immediately in view of said discussions: an immediate authorization for 100,000 Jews to immigrate to Eretz Israel; full political and economic autonomy for the area designated for the future Jewish state; and granting the authorities in said area exclusive discretion in approving further immigration.
