In September 1978 Egyptian president Anwar Sadat and Israeli prime minister Menachem Begin traveled to Camp David, Maryland, to participate in the Camp David Accords, mediated by U.S. President Jimmy Carter. While the meetings at Camp David were ostensibly held to discuss the establishment of Palestinian autonomy in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, the most significant development to come out of the accords was a peace agreement signed between Egypt and Israel. For this, Sadat and Begin were jointly awarded the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. Critics of the peace agreement felt that without the threat of the Egyptian military force Israel had little incentive to continue any further peace talks with Palestine.
