A WELCOME AND ACCLAIMED EVENT...
IP: 72.222.137.3


According to any records that pronounce President Jimmy Carter as having been successful at anything was the peace treaty signed on the date by Egypt and
Israel...Later Carter would leave office almost disgraced by the abortive attempt to free the Iran hostages...JW

The peace treaty between Egypt and Israel was signed 16 months after Egyptian president Anwar Sadat's visit to Israel in 1977 after intense negotiation. The main features of the treaty were mutual recognition, cessation of the state of war that had existed since the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, normalization of relations and the complete withdrawal by Israel of its armed forces and civilians from the Sinai Peninsula which Israel had captured during the Six-Day War in 1967. Egypt agreed to leave the area demilitarized. The agreement also provided for the free passage of Israeli ships through the Suez Canal, and recognition of the Strait of Tiran and the Gulf of Aqaba as international waterways.

The agreement notably made Egypt the first Arab state to officially recognize Israel
