Rabin Calls for New Summit to ‘nail Down’ Camp David Accords

Download PDF for this date

Former Premier Yitzhak Rabin called today for a U.S.-Israeli-Egyptian summit meeting to be held early next year to “nail down” the Camp David agreements and the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty.

Addressing the Labor Party’s Central Committee, Rabin accused the Reagan Administration of lack of interest in the Camp David accords and said a three-way summit meeting was necessary so that President Reagan and President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt could affix their signatures to the agreements, originally signed by President Carter and President Anwar Sadat and Premier Menchem Begin. The Premier is the only one of the original signatories still in office. Officials close to Begin rejected Rabin’s proposed new summit.
