Estimate: $200+

Description

Glossy 10 x 8 photo of the 1979 Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty Signing, signed in black ink, "J. Carter" and "M. Begin." In fine condition, with slight blotting to Carter's last name.

In 1978, President Carter hosted Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin at Camp David for clandestine peace talks. Six months later, on March 26, 1979, Begin and Sadat met in Washington, DC, to sign the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty, for which the two won the Nobel Peace Prize. Sadat's signing of the treaty was a leading cause of his assassination by rebel militants inside Egypt in 1981.
