Green Line refers to the demarcation lines set out in the 1949 Armistice Agreements between Israel and its neighbours after the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. The Green Line is also used to mark the line between Israel and the territories captured in the Six-Day War, including the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Golan Heights and Sinai Peninsula. The name derives from the green ink used to draw the line on the map while the talks were going on. The green line is commonly referred to as the "pre-1967 borders", the "1967 borders" or the "1967 lines" by US President Obama, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Israeli PM Netanyahu and by the United Nations in informal texts and in the text of UN GA Resolutions.
