The Israeli parliament approves of a peace treaty with Egypt that will formally end not only the Yom Kippur War which started and ended nearly six years ago but also the state of war which has existed between Israel and Egypt since 1948. The treaty is a product of the 1978 Camp David Accords and requires both states to recognize each other.

In exchange for recognizing the existence of Israel as a state and ending war with Israel, the United States will start providing military and economic aid to Egypt as well as political support for its governments.
