Camp David Accords September 17, 1978

After twelve days of secret negotiations at Camp David , the Israeli-Egyptian negotiations were concluded by the signing at the White House of two agreements.

The first dealt with the future of the Sinai and peace between Israel and Egypt, to be concluded within three months.

The second was a framework agreement establishing a format for the conduct of negotiations for the establishment of an autonomy regime in the West Bank and Gaza .

The Israel-Egypt agreement clearly defined the future relations between the two countries, all aspects of withdrawal from the Sinai , military arrangements in the peninsula such as demilitarization and limitations, as well as the supervision mechanism.

The framework agreement regarding the future of the West Bank areas Judea , Samaria and Gaza was less clear and was later interpreted differently by Israel , Egypt, and the United States of America.

President Jimmy Carter of the USA witnessed the accords which were signed by Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin .
