ABSTRACT
The article focuses on international efforts to promote peace in the Middle East. Two documents related to peace between Egypt and Israel came out of the Camp David, Maryland summit. The treaty was signed by Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menahim Begin, and the event was witnessed by U.S. President Jimmy Carter. In this context, the article looks at international diplomacy efforts sponsored by the U.S. and Soviet Union, and the implications of the treaty on the relationship between the U.S. and the Soviet Union.
