Tagged: Camp David Accords

The Camp David Accords were a pivotal moment in Middle Eastern diplomacy, held in 1978 between Egypt’s Anwar Sadat, Israel’s Menachem Begin, and mediated by U.S. President Jimmy Carter.

These meetings took place at the Camp David presidential retreat and resulted in a peace treaty between Egypt and Israel, the first time an Arab nation recognized Israel.

The Accords comprised two agreements: the Framework for Peace in the Middle East and the Framework for the Conclusion of a Peace Treaty between Egypt and Israel.

The peace treaty, signed in 1979, has held to this day. For their efforts, Sadat and Begin were awarded the 1978 Nobel Peace Prize.

The Accords were historic because they marked the end of decades of hostility between Egypt and Israel and paved the way for subsequent peace negotiations in the region.
