Although the agreements were a historic agreement between two parties, often at odds, and Sadat and Begin shared the 1978 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of this achievement (Jimmy Carter would win in 2002″for his decades of tireless efforts to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts), their overall importance is controversial because the region is still mired in conflict. The situation was particularly difficult on the tenth day of stalled negotiations. The issues of the withdrawal of Israeli settlements from Sinai and the status of the West Bank have created an apparent stalemate. In response, Carter had the choice to save the agreement by admitting the West Bank issue, while defending Sadat`s less controversial position on the withdrawal of all Sinai settlements. Or he could have refused to continue the talks, pointed out the reasons for their failure, and allowed Begin to bear the primary responsibility. The second agreement, entitled “A Framework for the Conclusion of a Peace Treaty between Egypt and Israel,” covered the peace treaty (the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty), ratified by both sides six months later, in March 1979, at the White House. Nevertheless, Egypt and Israel have reached agreement on a number of previously controversial issues. The resulting Camp David agreements essentially included two separate agreements. The first, entitled “A Framework for Peace in the Middle East,” called for two other important lessons to be less tangible. Camp David needed a remarkable guided tour of Sadat, Begin and Carter.
Sadat took enormous political risks – which ended up costing him his life – by negotiating with Israel. Begin was not a peacenik, but he expressed skepticism and ideology in reaching an agreement. And despite a series of early challenges and failures, Carter has found a way to act as a credible intermediary and broker. Camp David is a dramatic story of diplomacy and leadership. After taking office on January 20, 1977, President Carter attempted to rejuvenate the Middle East peace process, which stalled throughout the 1976 U.S. presidential campaign. After advising a report from the Brookings Institution, Carter decided to replace the incremental bilateral peace talks that had characterized the diplomacy of Henry Kissinger`s shuttle after the Yom Kippur War in 1973 with a comprehensive multilateral approach. The Yom Kippur War has made it more difficult to achieve the objectives set out in UN Security Council Resolution 242.
